What Others Say
Speaking & Worship Leading
Mrs. Shireen Spencer has been a close friend of the family for twenty years. Throughout this time I have been a witness to Shireen’s steadfast faith and joy in the face of adversity and in times of blessing. She has demonstrated a positive attitude and a spirit of encouragement to all who are acquainted with her. Shireen is hard working, resourceful and accepts challenges with an indomitable spirit. She is out-going, affable and well-liked by everyone.
As a friend she has been a personal counsellor and confidante providing sound doctrinal wisdom and scriptural guidance. Shireen exhibits maturity and grace sharing through her own personal experience and testimony of her faith in God. Her wisdom and counselling is sought out by others.
Shireen has been in full-time ministry for over six years and she has a wonderful gift of worship and preaching. Shireen has a beautiful voice and a genuine heart of worship which comes as naturally as the air she breathes. She is able to use the gifts to draw the church into the throne room of the Lord. Her dependency is on the Holy Spirit and her desire is to see people set free through the movement of the Holy Spirit. She is always well-prepared and in fullness of spirit. Her preparation for each service is individualized and relevant to the congregation that she is ministering to. Her ministering ability can easily accommodate any form of worship (ie. Denominational) style. Shireen’s preaching style is engaging and practical.
Shireen has a minister’s heart and I know that she takes great joy in ministering to the body of Christ. She is a minister that I believe depends on the Lord and this is evident during times of worship. I have full confidence in her gifts and abilities, but I have greater assurance in the God that she serves and relies upon.

I met Pastor Shireen Spencer in a Christian book store many years ago. Her charm and personality combined with her solid Christian character has kept us close and I thank God for her and for using her in a mighty way to bless many lives.
Throughout these past years I have watched Shireen utilize every gift that God has given to her, as she participates in His business. With a firm reliance on God, she has leapt over many obstacles, claiming victory through Jesus Christ.
Shireen is blessed with a very melodious voice and is an excellent gospel singer. She has ministered in music with the Jubilance Singers& Orchestra. For several years, Shireen has served with pure joy as Music Director at her home church and as a diligent Pastor delivers her sermons with passion and authority.
This anointed woman of God, who was formerly a teacher by profession, is also a powerful motivational speaker and challenges her audience to trust in Jesus, reminding them to be of good courage because He is the source of their strength.
Pastor Shireen is a kind and caring person and a prayer warrior. I am saying this because she was there to cover me with a blanket of prayer when I suffered a major stroke and then a year after a severe heart attack. Today, by the grace and mercy of God I have survived both and I am restored to good health.
I pray that God will continue to bless and guide God’s faithful servantand her lovely family as she continues to do His will.
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us. Unto Him be glory throughout all the ages”. Amen (Eph: 3:20).

Here at GracePoint, we’ve had the privilege to have Shireen with us numerous times during the past ten years or so, and each time we’ve been blessed by her music ministry. Shireen is a gifted vocalist, one of those rare artists for whom singing seems so natural. But even more important, Shireen’s love for the Lord comes through clearly through not only her singing but also her encouraging comments and personal sharing. I heartily recommend her to you, and look forward to having her back with us at GracePoint in the near future.”

Pastor Shireen Spencer is a no-nonsense person, who lives out the truth of the Bible every day in every aspect of her life. This is fully reflected in her preaching, where she is biblically sound and and seeks to help other not only learn the content and context of the Bible, but, most importantly, how to apply it to one’s life in order to honour and please the Lord and in order for us to live lives that make a difference and that has meaning and purpose.
Her music ministry is an absolute blessing. God has gifted Pastor Shireen with a beautiful voice, musical knowledge and a heart that is so in tuned to him that as she leads others in worship we are drawn into the very presence of God and feel that we have made a connection with Him. Whether she’s leading in worship or doing a solo music ministry, her spirit, her attitude and her leadership is a tremendous blessing.
The key to Pastor Shireen’s ministry, whether it’s preaching, leading in worship, solos, visitation, teaching is that she is consecrated to the Lord and her greatest desire is to help others grow closer to Him and experience the blessing of being in right relationship with Him that is then reflected in our personal lives.”

I first met Shireen in April 2012, when she spoke to our Women’s Ministry group. I was introduced to her through a mutual friend who recommend her as a speaker. Shireen, is knowledgeable and well prepared on her given topics or topics of choice. She is articulate, clear in thought and speech. She is an anointed speaker of the gospel of Jesus Christ and her devotion and love for Him comes through in her messages to those who have been blessed to hear her speak. Shireen is a diverse working woman who is a minister, wife, mother, teacher, councillor, Mary Kay Director and friend. After sharing with our Woman’s Ministry group, she was invited a month later to share with our College and Career group. They were pleased to have her share and have asked her to come and give a message again this year. So, it does not matter the age of the group, Shireen has a gift to listen, understand and connect with people of all ages, and they would be blessed to have her in their midst.

We are very pleased to recommend Rev. Shireen Spencer as Song Evangelist. Shireen leads with enthusiasm, yet is sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and the needs of the speaker. The music she selects is widely varied, with emphasis on the message of the song. She has a very pleasant personality and connects well with the congregation.

Re: Shireen Spencer I have had the pleasure of knowing Shireen for almost 20 years. She is quite a powerful and unique woman with many gifts. Shireen was a beloved member of the Toronto Mass Choir, a gospel choir which records and tours internationally. Shireen has an engaging personality and a real caring spirit which comes across from the first time you meet her. During that time, Shireen not only was a valuable singing member, but took on various leadership tasks including worship leading and event planning. We were so pleased when Shireen became a teacher and I could see how her gifts would continue to be used in a whole new environment to benefit the lives of young people. More recently, the Toronto Mass Choir asked Shireen to lead a marriage seminar for members of our team as we love to provide great life resources and encouragement for the members of our team from time to time. The thoughtful preparation and presentation that Shireen put together for us was very well received and much appreciated. The material was relevant and delivered in a way which was friendly, well paced and sensitive. Shireen is a professional who always comes through on the tasks that she is asked to complete and has yet to disappoint. I know that as she continues to develop her continued seminar teaching and ministry outreach that she will meet with much success. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with Shireen will be very impacted by her commitment to serve and to share from her life experiences. I highly recommend Shireen without reservation.

Shireen Spencer conducted a marriage workshop for us. I have known Shireen for many years, I have seen her minister as a worship leader and soloist but had never heard her preach or conduct a seminar, so I was looking forward to hearing her at this marriage workshop.
I am pleased to announce that all of us were blessed, encouraged and challenged by her presentation. Shireen was well prepared; the sessions were full of humour, interactive, scripturally sound and very practical.
It did not matter whether you were newly married of married for several years, there was something for everyone. Her illustrations and stories reinforced the truths that she was sharing, the fact that her husband Che was involved in the seminar was an added bonus.
Everyone walked away from the seminar with something that would be useful, the hand out /worksheets were invaluable especially the one dealing with the proper way to make an apology.
Anyone looking for a speaker for a weekend marriage workshop would find in Shireen a sensitive, compassionate and insightful person.

I have known Shireen Spencer for over five years and I have had the privilege of working with her at the Rosewood Church of the Nazarene.
Shireen is a respectful, friendly, caring, generous, and loving person. In her work environment, Shireen shows a lot of enthusiasm, passion, and drive to see God’s work happen and touch the lives of others. Her greatest strength is she has a heart for people. She is able to think big and outside of the box so that others will have the opportunity to know and experience the love of Jesus Christ.
Her vast array of gifts and talents make her an asset to any team. She is a hardworking, determined, and committed to all of her duties.
