I grew up in Barrie with my parents and 5 siblings. I was home-schooled from the Kindergarten through High-school, and then went on to attend Heritage Bible College and Seminary where I completed a Bachelors Degree, and M.Div. While the education was great, the best thing that happened to me at Heritage, was meeting my wife Megan! We have been married 6 years, and have the privilege of raising 2 beautiful daughters together!
After finishing college in 2012, Megan and I moved to London where I began a pastoral internship under Pastor Mark Hollywood here at Compass. We have loved our time here ever since!
Previous Occupation Before Compass
My job at Compass has been my first formal vocation; but before and during college, I spent many summers working with my brothers doing lawn and general property maintenance in Barrie.
Favourite Bible Verse
Titus 3:3-8. These verses highlight very well what John Newton is quoted as saying when he was near the end of his life: “Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.” And this, is good news!
I enjoy trying to be competent at any sport that involves a ball, and biking along the trails in London. I like arguing about whose coffee is better, McDonald’s or Tim Hortons (but you had better say McDonald’s!). I also enjoy swimming (in the pool, lakes are scary!), reading, and playing around on a piano or guitar. But far more fulfilling and greater than all of these things is… BACON! I love Bacon!
