I currently serve with Youth Unlimited with 15+ years of youth ministry experience within the context of the local church. I started youth ministry programs in two churches, leading them as a volunteer. Spent the past 5 years serving full-time as Youth Pastor at Cornerstone CRC. Before Cornerstone CRC, I worked 11 years with the Bible League and 7 of those years as their Youth Ministries Director. In addition to my former employment and years as a church youth leader, I have experience networking with youth workers in the context of my local community and nationally with the Christian Reformed Church of Canada. I also serve as an advisor to the Youth Specialties Canadian Youth Workers Convention and led multiple intergenerational trips to places like Russia, Philippines, China, India, Nigeria, Zambia and Israel.
Personally, I am committed to following Christ wherever called, a devoted husband and father of three beautiful children and a man who is passionate about using my God-given gifts to help churches and their youth workers challenge youth to commit their lives to Jesus Christ.
