I am passionate about the church! I find it amazing that God would bestow his grace on sinful and broken people and then invite us to join him in his plan to establish his kingdom in this world. And so, I consider it a profound blessing to serve as the Senior Pastor at King Road. God has given us a unique ministry opportunity in Abbotsford and beyond as we try to bring the life-changing power of Jesus Christ to our world.

I am married to Lou and we have three grown children: Deanne (Scott), Darren (Judi) and Dana. We also have the six cutest grandkids in the world – thank you Darren & Judi and Deanne & Scott! I enjoy reading, travelling, cheering against the Canucks, and South American style BBQs!!

It is a great privilege to serve God and our local church. Jesus did so much for me and I know that anything I do for him and his church will fall short of demonstrating my thankfulness to him. But praise God that we do not need to repay him but accept his love as a gift and serving has become a pleasure for me. Seeing people to get to know Jesus is a great joy! I am also greatly thankful for another gift from God to me, Rosy, my wife. She has been a true friend and companion and together we are blessed to have two daughters with their husbands and four grandchildren: Cecilia & Leo with Julia and Kayla, and Daisy & Dan with Sophie and Riley. I always loved sports and lately I have been introduced to golfing. What a learning experience!

Our awesome God is a God of wonders and miracles; the greatest miracle happened to me in 1992 when I received His grace, love, hope, and forgiveness of all my sins. Shortly after that God also healed my physical body and gave me a second chance to live for His glory and honour.

It has been a great privilege serving my Father in heaven for the past 20 years. He has given me a passion for people, and in a special way for young people. It is a huge blessing to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords at King Road. Seeing our young people growing in their knowledge and faith of Jesus Christ is a true blessing. My highlights for the year are going on our annual missions trip to Mexico, planning, preparing and serving at our TREK camp in the summer, and our fall retreats with the youth and young adults.

I thank God for my wife Ester, who is always there to encourage and support me; she is also my prayer partner. We have two boys, Brian and Jeremy, who are full of life and energy. On my free evenings, I like to have a pizza party in our basement and cheer for our Canucks. I also like to watch other sports, like baseball and the NFL. During the late spring, summer and fall I LOVE to play golf (my day off is on Tuesday... hint, hint!) and after golfing, eating a delicious BBQ.

Seventeen years ago three significant events occurred within a short time frame: I graduated from college, I married Bonnie, and I started to serve at King Road as a very young (but enthusiastic) youth pastor. King Road has become home, a place for my family and me to put down roots and serve with our gifts, whether in a staff or volunteer position. My current role is Associate Pastor of Church Ministries. My main focus is on adult ministries, trusting that God will continue to enable all of us to be adventurous Christ-followers experiencing a deepening relationship with God and impacting our world. It is a huge privilege to be part of a great team at King Road. I am blessed to be able to make a living serving God with my gifts and passions.

Bonnie and I have two active boys. We enjoy volunteering in their school. I enjoy cycling, reading, and traveling (care to guess how many provinces and states I’ve visited?). I also like coffee, not only the drink, but more so the opportunity it provides for meaningful conversation with others.

I consider it a privilege to lead the Children’s Ministry at King Road. After years of being a stay at home mom and homeschooling my children, God gave me a passion for children’s ministry and an opportunity to serve the church in this way. Children are a vibrant important part of the church family. Primary responsibility for spiritual training falls to parents but the church is called to assist parents in this role. We long to see that children not only gain Bible knowledge as a foundation for life, but also develop a deepening personal love relationship with Jesus and a desire to serve Him.

I am married to my best friend, Ben for over 25 years and we have three young adult daughters who are a delight to us. We live on and operate a small raspberry farm.

In my spare time I enjoy providing respite care for persons with disabilities, reading, and working on craft projects of various kinds.
