SonLife began in 1994 with a vision to reach the community of Dartmouth North under the leadership of Pastor Russell Knowles and Pastor Jonathan Smith. Our slogan was "Come as you are, you'll be loved.”

Our first meetings began in the Dartmouth North Boys & Girls Club and lasted for a short time until we moved to a neighboring school gymnasium. SonLife became well known in the community as we provided food, clothing, and many outreaches.

After 10 years of meeting in a school gymnasium we were graciously given a building of our own. Emmanuel Church was sadly closing their parish that had been a cornerstone in the community. After presenting to them our interest in their building, their leadership unanimously decided to sell their building to us for one-dollar! We will never be able to express the extent of our gratefulness to them.

We moved into our present building on Christmas Sunday, 2004. Since that time we have been working to renovate the facilities to meet our needs.

SonLife's history is one of reaching into our community. We are here to connect with others, to connect with God, and to connect others with God. We hope you join us.
