Erinn Oxford was born and raised in Toronto, a city that she loves. She has been working in Parkdale, a neighbourhood in the city’s west end since 2007. In 2012 she was invited to become the full-time Executive Director and Pastor of what was previously known as Parkdale Neighbourhood Church. Tasked with re-visioning the ministry, Erinn sought the feedback of the community and proposed a full reboot, one that would include giving up a building, spilling into the streets, creating a nomadic routine, and becoming The Dale Ministries. She longs for and pursues the building of community where all people are welcome and those who experience poverty are valued.
Erinn studied at both Tyndale University College & Seminary, and Humber College and is ordained through the CBOQ. Erinn has extensive experience working with people who are street involved, underhoused and trying to cope with substance addiction and mental health issues. She is married to Dion and they have a daughter, Cate.
