About the Leaders
Gilberto is a former business owner now giving all his time to the ministry and Maria is currently a full time optometrist running a business located in Mississauga, Ontario. Both are devoted leaders in the International Intimacy With the Father Church Ministry located in West Toronto, Ontario.
Gil and Maria love to see how Jesus and the Father are at work transforming lives, people being restored and healed both emotionally and physically. They are eager to see people recover whatever has been lost in their lives by the amazing grace given through the precious sacrifice of Jesus Christ's life and the redemptive power of the work of the cross for all who are willing to receive this amazing gift.
Maria says, when God gets hold of you He changes you from the inside out. God has nothing but good to say about His children because Jesus paid the price for all of us. Gil always preaches that Jesus has accomplished this miracle for everyone who receives Jesus personally by faith into their heart.
Both Gil and Maria are gifted prophetically and in many other ways. They encourage people to fully develop their spiritual gifts and to come to a place of maturity in their faith with the help of the Holy Spirit.
People need to know they are always accepted by God and have a secure identity in Him.
Gil and Maria continuously encourage all believers in Christ to stay in an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and to participate in the release of the Holy Spirit's gifts in the life of the Church. They are passionate about the work of God and desire for Jesus and the Father to be glorified.
