I was ordained in Vancouver in 1994 and have served congregations in Winnipeg and Abbotsford before coming to Our Saviour in the fall of 2016. My wife Jackie grew up in Richmond, so Richmond has always been a familiar place.
I am excited about this community and about the ministry of Our Saviour in our changing world.
I cannot imagine the world without God but I also cannot imagine God without the world. Fortunately, God cannot imagine it any other way either, and we see God’s love and concern for the world revealed in Jesus.
Besides a love for the Gospel, the church, and my family, I love pretty much anything you can do outdoors. I am an endorser of the Ekklesia Project.
I look forward to meeting you, our neighbours, whether out in the community or at the church.
I have been a member of OSLC since 1961, involved in all aspects of congregational life.
Music Ministry is my passion … piano and organ, mentoring young musicians and love of hymnody through worship planning, choir, and congregational singing.
”My life flows on in endless song, how can I keep from singing.”
I hold a Bachelor of Music in piano performance (UBC) and a Diploma in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music (ARCT)). I am performer, accompanist, teacher, and coach. As a B.C. Registered Music Teacher I have taught numerous students.
I have have played the piano and organ at Our Saviour Lutheran Church since I was eight years old and am currently involved in leading the Bell Choir.
In my spare time I accompany the Surrey Community Choir. I also run a leadership and career coaching business.
