Our History

the toronto blessing

In January of 1994, led by John and Carol Arnott, a church known at the time as Toronto Airport Vineyard met on the end of a runway at Pearson International Airport in Toronto. It quickly came to the world's attention as a place where God chose to meet with His people as the Holy Spirit poured out in unprecedented ways. As a result of this divine visitation, the members were thrust into ministry to thousands of people worldwide. This revival, carrying heavenly Father's love, came to be known as the Toronto Blessing which had a huge global impact spreading to hundreds of nations around the world. Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (TACF) soon became a familiar new name.

from here to the nations

Fast forward a few years, with a passion for local church to manifest God's Kingdom on earth and to disperse revival to the nations, TACF transitioned into Catch The Fire. After two decades of significant and impactful years of hosting revival, John and Carol as Senior Leaders passed on the baton to Duncan & Kate Smith who now lead the ministry with a trustworthy and dynamic team who are passionate about seeing this global movement of churches encounter God's transforming presence.
