Quick Bio

I grew up in a Christian home have known Jesus since I was six years old. After a 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 — tech, sound, graphic design, photography, video editing, small group leader, writer, musician, and of course, preaching and teaching. Whatever it takes to share Jesus and teach scripture in a creative and inspiring way!

I’ve been married to Anita since ’97 and they have four children. Some of my other interests include 3D printing, dice making, writing, podcasting, photography, watching cartoons and movies with explosions.
