I spent my early years in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Our family attended church and I always had a sense of God’s presence but during my time at our family’s church I never heard the gospel and I had no understanding of why Jesus was crucified or what it meant for me. When I began university I came into contact with Campus Crusade for Christ, an evangelistic club on campus. After meeting with a Campus Crusade staff person and having him share Christ’s story with me, I committed my life to Christ. The following four years of university were filled with missions trips, evangelism, leading Bible studies and attending conferences. The greatest blessing God gave me in my university years was meeting Andrea, who was attending Simon Fraser University. We met on a summer missions trip in Calgary. As soon as I graduated we joined staff with Campus Crusade for Christ and I moved to the West Coast. We remained with that organization in one form or another for eight years, until our first son was born. Since then Andrea has stayed at home and has done an extraordinary job volunteering at the public school our boys have attended. After Elliot’s birth and just before our next son, Simon, was born, I began working at Country Lumber and I have been there twelve years, currently serving as Shipper at their Engineered yard. We have been attending Pacific Community Church for six years. Currently I am leading a men’s small group, a men’s book club, serving as a greeter and am on the schedule for leading Prayers of the People. Elliot and Simon are both thriving in Youth and Impact and Elliot is beginning to play keyboards in the youth band. Andrea loves being in her book club and working in the community garden. Our family is thankful to have found community here and I am excited about what God is doing in and through our church.
