I have been the lead pastor at Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship since January 2012. Since coming to faith in Christ as a teenager in rural Manitoba, God has given me a passion to know him and to teach His Word “so that all God’s people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16) where we live, work and play. Like the person at Disneyland who runs to get the front seat of the roller coaster to get the full experience, I’ve wanted to have a front row seat on what the life-changing power of Jesus Christ looks like in people’s lives. I value partnering with other local churches and organizations to identify and address key ministry needs and opportunities on our doorstep.
I graduated from Vancouver’s Regent College with an MDiv in 1995 and have pastored in the Greater Vancouver area since that time. My wife Elaine and I have a daughter and two sons. I enjoy spending time camping, reading, doing carpentry, gardening and golfing.
