About Me

I am a husband, father, son and most importantly an image bearer. Born and raised in BC, I finished school, headed to University and even found myself halfway around the world a few times. My journey took me through a business career, to seminary, into full time ministry and a few side trips along the way. I have spent significant time travelling and working with ministries across Canada. I am now serving as the Lead Pastor at Central Fellowship Baptist. One thing I am very passionate about is seeing ministry happen with families at all stages. I believe strongly in equipping families to be all God has designed them to be.

As one who loves scripture and leading others into its depth and beauty, I love learning and helping others on their journey. On this blog you will find some of what I've read and some thoughts about it. As a father, I want my children to fall in love with their creator. I want them to grasp the big picture of the Bible, to have a map that shows them where the pieces fit. To that end I have been putting together a list of resources that our family has found valuable on this journey. I have also been putting together a series of classes on the Big Picture of scripture. 

Photobooth fun!
On the family side, my wife Dana is an amazing woman and gift from God who makes our house a home and meets the myriad of our family every day. We met while both attending Heritage College & Seminary in Cambridge, ON. After graduation we packed up and moved to BC where I was called to be the Lead Pastor and we began our family. We have two children, a daughter and a son. Our daughter is full of life and keeps us on our toes with her vast vocabulary and sharp logic that will confound any adult. Our son has been a great gift who has taken us on an unexpected journey. Born with Down Syndrome we weren't sure what to expect. I have learned more about life, about trust and about unbridled joy through him than I could have ever imagined. I am learning not to judge someone's capabilities or limitations as I see him do things beyond what the "experts" say. Most important, he is not identified by his disability but rather, by the unique person he is and the journey we are on with him.  

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and I trust you will find something of value to take away from it.
