Thomas Todhunter Shields
Canadian pastor. T.T. Shields was born in Bristol, England,
the son of a Baptist minister. At an early age, he was con-
verted to Christ during a revival meeting in his father's
church. He was educated in British universities. After a few
pastorates in England, he was called to the Jarvis Street
Baptist Church in Toronto, Canada, in 1910, where he served
for 45 years.
However, his service for Christ was not confined to
the Jarvis Street Church, in that he was active in the fol-
lowing capacities: vice-chairman of the Home Mission Board of
the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec, president of
the Baptist Union of North America, vice-president of the In-
ternational Council of Christian Churches, president of the
Union of Regular Baptist Churches of Ontario and Quebec,
president of the Conservative Baptist Churches of Canada,
president of the Canadian Council of Evangelical Christian
Churches, and president of the Canadian Protestant League.
In 1927 Dr. Shields organized the Toronto Baptist
Seminary. He also was the author of a number of Christian
books. He was the leading exponent of fundamental Christian-
ity in Canada, which caused him to be referred to as "the
Spurgeon of Canada."
