About My Family

I'm a single guy on the ride of his life making disciples full time in the coolest city in North America: Vancouver, British Columbia!

Before I met Jesus, my life was filled with loneliness and shame. I didn't feel I belonged anywhere, so I would become like a "chameleon" to fit in. This didn't help; it just made my problems worse. Eventually, I heard the truth that my problems were deeper than not fitting in. I was destined to be separated from God forever due to my sin. But because of the glorious gospel message, I could surrender to Jesus and find security in Him now and for all of eternity. Now because of Jesus and everything He is for me, I have a sense of purpose and belonging as a child of God.

In my free time I enjoy various types of indie music, reading way too much, pop culture, hiking and drinking locally roasted coffee.

About My Church Plant

In partnership with Towers Baptist locally, I am planting Zoē Church (pronounced Zo-eh?) in metro Vancouver. Zoē is the Greek word for life. A deeper study defines zoē as an abundance of life or eternal life that comes through knowing Jesus alone (John 10:10; 17:3).

Our vision: To see metro Vancouver move from death into life with Jesus.

Mission: To cultivate communities of healthy people who multiply life with Jesus everywhere.

The desired structure for Zoē is one church networked across metro Vancouver in many unique expressions called missional communities of grace (COGs). These COGs will enable us to serve our expensive, complex and diverse city without breaking the bank.

In God's grace and timing, foundations for new COGs are slowly being laid at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Richmond, B.C., and in southeast Vancouver.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.
