When Josh Gander began Sound Words Baptist Church in Toronto Canada by first attempting a coup of Trinity Baptist Church and then splitting into a new church, the New IFB mainstream didn’t put their stamp of approval on the church. As recently as February, the church was not listed in the New IFB directory. However, Steven Anderson and the rest seem to have gotten over that, as the church is now listed in the New IFB directory.
Gander is listed not as pastor, but simply as “Bro. Josh Gander.”
