Disciples making disciples.
I thank and praise God that He opened my eyes to the weakness of my faith. I thank Him for providing people to disciple me, and I am humbled that He asked me to disciple others. Evangelism is how the church truly grows and disciple-making is how it matures.
My wife Lacy and I both grew up in the Niagara Region and have lived here all our lives. God has blessed us with two incredible children, Stephanie and William. I studied at Emmanuel Bible College and graduated with a Bachelor of Theology with a Pastoral Ministry focus. One quirk about me is I will ask you for coffee, but I personally prefer to drink tea. Regardless of the caffeinated beverage, I enjoy the conversations and friendships that form as time is spent together. I love spending time in nature, especially if it is near water and I have a fishing rod in my hand.
By this, all people will know that you are My disciples if you have love for one another. (John 13:35)
May Vineland know that we are Jesus’ disciples here at VMC by our love for one another.
He must increase, but I must decrease.
The Lord has lead me me down a long winding path to serve here at VMC!
I come from Tillsonburg, a small town in southern Ontario, I studied at Tyndale University receiving a BA in Biblical Studies/Theology with a minor in Youth ministry, and I followed my wife out to the Niagara region to start our lives together. We now have 2 kids, Scarlett (3) and Oliver (1), and we look forward to them growing up in this community.
God has been continually calling me to minister to our next generations since I was 12, and I volunteered with anything I could (Sunday school, Bible camp, weeknight ministries, youth retreats, missions trips, etc). I am passionate about teaching and equipping these next generations and seeing the amount of children/youth present at this church warms my heart!
My hobbies include playing sports, hiking, video games, comic books and pretty much all things "nerdy".
P.S. For easy identification at church, please ignore my hair in this picture, I am now bald.
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
