Somethings are just meant to be together. Steak and potatoes. Bonnie and Clyde. Chocolate and peanut butter.

Two congregations from two different denominations. Each with almost 2 decades of ministry, serving God and serving people.

The FreeWay found themselves with an incredible pastor and leadership team, but with no building to call home.

Gateway found themselves with a recently purchased church building, but with no pastor at the helm.

This new partnered ministry, The Corner Church, is forging a new path, showing that God's people can come together, and together serve God and the neighbourhood of South Ritson Road in Oshawa.

JACKIE, Associate Pastor of Community Life

Jackie is an Ordained Elder in the Church of the Nazarene, and currently works as the Associate Pastor of Community Life at The Corner Church. She oversees connecting people into our church family, our evangelism ministry, and our small groups. She’d love to chat with you!

DALE, Lead Pastor


Dale has been lead pastor at the FreeWay since 2009, and Gateway as of 2018.

“I was born in London Ontario and moved to the Edmonton Alberta area when I was eight years old.  I studied English and Art at the University of Alberta, and graduated with an education degree in 1997.  My wife Dani and I were married in 1994 and we’re proud parents of 3 wonderful children.  I was called out of my teaching career to study at Briercrest Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan, and graduated with a Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Ministry in 2009.  I’m excited to be ministering the Word of God at The Corner Church.  My interests include music, song writing, reading, writing, playing squash, and watching ‘Corner Gas’ with my family.”

Dani, Assistant Pastor

“Dani Harris is currently working on her Masters of Divinity with a specialty in Marriage and Family Counselling through Briercrest Seminary in Caronport Saskatchewan. She serves in a volunteer capacity as an assistant pastor at the FreeWay. She enjoys working with the youth group, serving on the preaching team, leading the ministry team, and basically helping out where needed. Balancing ministry, studies, part-time vocational work as an occupational therapist, and most importantly, being mom to three amazing teenagers and wife to pastor Dale keeps her on her toes. She looks forward to welcoming you to the FreeWay, should you decide to visit on a Sunday morning!”
