I was born and grew up in Toronto. I went to Ontario Bible College, now Tyndale. I met my wife at OBC as we both did a Bachelor of Religious Education degree. We spent the first 15 years of married life in Toronto where our two daughters, Beth & Cheryl were born. I was on staff at Bridletowne Park Church for 7 years after Bible College and then in business. I felt a call to London, not knowing what God wanted us to do here. Beginning in 1994 I spent 23 leading the ministry of Key Bible Clubs before retiring in 2018.
We began attending Compass in 1990 so we’ve been here for 28 years.
Favourite Bible Verse
Phillippians 2:1-4. It speaks of the response to being united with Christ and the resulting relationships we should have with one another.
When I was younger I played most team sports or at least tried to play them. Growing up in Toronto I was and still am a Toronto Maple Leaf fan. I saw the last four Stanley Cups that they won. That sealed my loyalty.
