I am an only child born in Ontario and was rescued by Jesus in my late teens. Together with my wife Jen we have served God’s Kingdom in different parts of the world and in Alberta, Ontario, and of course beautiful British Columbia. I have been a youth pastor, solo pastor, lead pastor, college dean, para-church servant, as well as working on dairy farms, lawn maintenance, hardware, and even dabbled in radio (and not just turning the dial!). My family joined the Gracepoint family in 2010.
Jen and I are the proud parents of Caleb, Benjamin, Jessie, Sadie, and Micah and we all enjoy our pooch, Molly. I love spending time with my wife and kids, hiking, and sports (pretty much everything, but mostly hockey, baseball, football and the other football - i.e. soccer). I’m an avid reader and student of culture and am passionate about inspiring the church to be on mission with God for the transformation of our cities, towns, and side roads. I am also an author of regular columns, a book, and a lot of scribble notes.
