Jesus is so good. He has been faithful and trustworthy, firm and compassionate, a friend, a teacher, and most of all my Savior and Lord. I grew up in a great home, with loving parents and brothers, where I learnt about God from day one. But I wasn't always that interested in Him.
I slept through Wee College, got C's in MEI Bible classes, and all around just wanted to party through High School youth. I was baptized at 18, but that excitement for Jesus was short-lived.
In my late twenties, after already being married to Carla for a few years and becoming a dad of two, God grabbed hold of my heart, led me to repentance, and I finally wanted to serve him fully. He opened my eyes to His grace and that even though I had sinned against Him greatly throughout my life, that "there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1), and that "He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
After working as a telecom/IT technician for 12 years and becoming a dad to two more amazing kids, God called me into full-time vocational ministry at 36. We sold our house, moved to Florida to attend Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, and spent Fridays at Disneyworld or the beach. Since getting my MDiv, I've been working in full-time ministry in Abbotsford. I started at King Road in September of 2020. Our family enjoys hanging out and watching movies, eating good food, playing games, Disney parks, beaches, and our dog Luther.
My Hope for King Road Church
My hope for King Road is that we are a church that loves God, loves people, and makes disciples of Jesus Christ.
I want us to do that by:
being a people who live out the Gospel of Jesus in word and deed
being hospitable to people of all tribes, tongues, and nations, regardless of social, economic, and political differences
worshiping God together regularly
growing in the knowledge and practice of His holy and inerrant word, the Bible.
