Here is a little about my life…

I was born in Orillia,  Ontario and spent my primary school years in the town and on a small farm in Atherley.  When I was going into grade 8 my Dad was transferred to London, Ontario where I graduated from Sir Wilfred Laurier Secondary School.  It was at this time that I was encouraged in my calling to be a Christian leader through the ministry of my home church – Glen Cairn Baptist church.

I have been married to my wife Gwen who has been my partner in ministry and mission for 28 years.  We have 7 children, five of our own and two through marriage to our oldest children.  We are also grandparents.  This year I am celebrating 30 years in church leadership.  I have a passion to mentor, coach and multiply leaders in the local church,  business and non profit sectors.

I graduated from Tyndale University College with a BTH (Bachelor of Theology) in 1986 while I was serving at Rosedale Baptist Church under the leadership of Dr. Gordon Stephens who was my mentor during my undergrad studies.  After graduation, Gwen and I were married and served in our first church together, Waverley Fellowship in Winnipeg Manitoba (1986-1994) where our four children were born.

From there we served once again as the lead pastoral couple at Burnett Fellowship in Maple Ridge B.C. (1994-1999).  I undertook a number of MDIV courses at Northwest Baptist Seminary.  From Maple Ridge we moved back to Ontario to lead Calvary Baptist Church in Guelph Ontario (1999-2008).

It was in Guelph that I was asked to become the Vice President of the Fellowship Baptists ( developing networks in Leadership Development, Church Multiplication (church starts) and Church Health.  It was at this time that I switched from an MDIV program to an MBA Leadership program graduating from Liberty University.  During this time I continued to coach leaders both at the local church level, business leaders and consulting churches.  With transitions and a new direction at the National Fellowship, Gwen and I came to the conclusion that we were to be open to a new opportunity for local church ministry.

Since February 2011 we have been serving at Cedarview Alliance Church ( as the Lead pastor in Nepean Ontario.   During this time our fifth child came into our family supernaturally through adoption. 

I am a certified life and leadership coach and a certified member of the John Maxwell team.  I am working toward a THD program through Master’s International School of Theology with an emphasis on Leadership.  

My great purpose is to be Courageous for His Mission and leave a legacy of Spiritual, Servant, Sacrificial, Submitted Leadership.
