I am a husband to my wife Shirley.  I am trying my best to raise my three kids which are now all teenagers and a young adult.

I am presently the lead Pastor of Lighthouse Community Church in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.  My family and several people moved into the area almost six years ago to start a church planting ministry.

If you don’t know where Cape Breton is it the eastern part of Nova Scotia and has one of the lowest percentage of young people and young adults engaged in any church in Canada. Previously, I spent eleven years as a youth, young adult, and missions pastor.

I try in a very simple and honest way to challenge people to live like Jesus without the clutter that is usually attached. I spend a bit of time speaking to  youth, young adults, parents, and leaders about why people walk away from their churches and faith.  I hope to re-engage many on the fringe and to speak hope into the lives of people, ministries, and churches today.

On a personal side I have been an extreme sports fan and participant most of my life.  I have been an active snowboarder and skateboarder for almost twenty five years.  I have a few other hobbies like photography, video shooting and editing, and playing music.

Over the past few years I started writing and now blogging.  I do not claim to have all the answers, but I have a lot of questions. I am not offended by people who disagree or think differently than me.  I love discussing issues of life, love, and faith.

  1. I just heard you speak this weekend at Engage at Briercrest. Thanks for your ministry!

    I think one of the things that I like best about the “Before You Say Goodbye” magazine is that it is a tool that can be used to help engage youth and young adults. I appreciate that it is trying to show the relevance of Scripture and the church and draw people towards a thriving relationship with The Lord. The use of QR codes to link to testimnonies, ministry opportunities and other information is a creative way to use various forms of media to communicate the same message.

    I would enjoy having a copy of your e-book “Beautiful Christ.”


  2. I read your book, “Before you say Goodbye” and would like to receive a copy of “Beautiful Christ”. My favourite part of the book was that you addressed many different issues I was struggling with, and answered so many of my questions about Christianity. However, I still have unanswered questions that I hope “Beautiful Christ” will address. Awesome book though!
