About My Family

I am married to Rhona who is a genuine co-worker in Christ, specializing in ministry to women. We have two adult children and a grandson. We are active in our community in various roles including a local cycling club (Jim) and as a national level referee in speed skating (Rhona). We hope to get extensively involved in our community events in Mahogany. I also serve as the chaplain for the senior center in our community.

About My Church Plant

We are planting a church that is committed to sharing the life-changing gospel of Jesus through community connections and genuine Christian community. The community we are serving is promoted as providing private lakeside living with the best modern amenities.

In this lifestyle-oriented, multicultural community, which is slated to house 80,000 people, Junction is the only church. It is thought that only 5% of Calgarians are followers of Jesus. By God’s grace He has burdened us to bring the hope of the gospel to the spiritually impoverished residents of Mahogany and neighboring areas.

The Lord has blessed us with significant outreach events touching many unchurched children and families from virtually every continent. We are excited about what He will continue to do.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.

Pray for Rhona and me as we work together in ministry. Pray that the Lord will open opportunities for me to move into full-time involvement at Junction Church. Pray the church will be established and faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray for me as I connect with people in the community, including the local senior center where I serve as part-time chaplain. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church and that future leaders would be identified and equipped. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with us, our team members and our families. Pray about bringing a summer team to help us in our kids and family outreach. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
