I am a Canadian who has twice lived in the US, once by my parents’ choice and once by my own. When I was in high school we also spent time in Mexico while my parents were training for missions. That gives me a very small claim to being a missionary or pastors kid, but most of my childhood was spent on a farm in southern Ontario. I have a BA from Dordt College and a MDiv from Calvin Seminary, but the largest and most ornate diploma on my wall is for a two year program, the Associate Diploma in Agriculture from the University of Guelph. I am married and am the father of three children. I am presently serving as pastor of the Calvary Christian Reformed Church in Chatham and have also served congregations in Nova Scotia and South Dakota. In my down time I enjoy reading for pleasure, gardening, cooking and baking bread without a machine.
