Quick Bio

I grew up in a Christian home have known Jesus since I was six years old. After a short time of teenage rebellion, God led me to North American Bible College (Now Taylor College & Seminary) in Edmonton to “figure things out”. There, I rededicated my life to Jesus, met my wife, Anita, and was called him into full-time ministry. Since then I’ve been serving Jesus’ in all areas of church life — preaching and teaching, writing, music, leadership development, small groups, tech, sound, graphic design, photography, video editing… whatever it takes to share Jesus and teach scripture in a creative and inspiring way!

If you really want to get to know me, I shared my “testimony” (life-story) in a series of 7 podcast episodes recently (#23-29).

Here’s the first episode (#23):
