About My Family

Ingrid and I met at a baseball game at the college we attended. It was love at first sight! A year later, in 1990, we were married. We have since served in four churches, two as youth pastor and two as lead pastor. We have also been missionaries to Mexico City.

We have been blessed with seven children with 20 years between the oldest, Brittany, who is a constable in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the youngest, Rhett, a mountain-biking fourth grader. We also have a grandson, Hudson.

I am a hunter, mountain biker and student and teacher of the Bible. Ingrid enjoys time with family, walks along the beach, Tim Horton's Ice Caps and leading women's Bible study. We feel we are truly the most blessed of people. With great anticipation, we look forward to the planting and growth of a church in Hatzic, Mission, British Columbia.

About My Church Plant

Over our 25 years of ministry, Ingrid and I have become strong advocates and practitioners of missional theology and engagement. We are in the embryonic stages of a missional network that will start in Mission, British Columbia and will eventually include communities in the Eastern Fraser Valley. Through building relationships with non church-goers in a community where church is viewed with suspicion, we will see people come to faith in Christ who will then lead others to faith and disciple them, too.

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 our family as we work together in establishing a missional network in Hatzic and Mission, British Columbia. Pray the church will be established and well-rooted and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray the Lord brings new believers to faith in Jesus and leaders who can help disciple the church. Pray for stamina and longevity of ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray for wisdom in all facets of life. Pray for safety for my three children who are first responders—two in police and security, one a paramedic. Pray that our resource needs will be met.


PRAY!!! Seriously pray. Though people are willing to speak of faith matters here, there is a very public animosity toward the church. Send emails, notes of encouragement and greetings. Such things remind us that people care and are praying. Send care teams, evangelism teams and VBS teams. We love people visiting and taking a direct interest in this vital church planting work.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
