I was born and raised in a Christian home and have always been a member of a Christian Reformed Church. I was baptized in the Kitchener Christian Reformed Church and grew up in the Niagara Falls CRC, Welland Junction CRC, Maranatha CRC in St Catharines. I graduated from Beacon Christian Highschool and spent two years at Calvin College and graduated with my BA from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
I met my wife Linda in Waterloo and we married in 1978 in Waterloo and attended the Waterloo CRC. I worked as an orderly in a Nursing home, later became an Adjuvant. In 1985 I became the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator for Faith Manor in Holland Christian Homes. At that time I became a member of Living Hope CRC in Brampton, Ontario. Later I attended the Community Christian Reformed Church of Meadowvale which I attended until the spring of 2010 which is when my wife became employed as the Ministry Coordinator of the Immanuel CRC in Caledon, Ontario.
I am presently the Administrator of Grace Manor in Holland Christian Homes. God has blessed me with two grown children, a challenging and interesting occupation, and a beautiful wife. My life is dedicated to sharing the good news of the gospel and grace and love that I have experienced to those I cross paths with in practical and meaningful ways.
I thank God every day for his underserved provision for me through my Christian parents (who live where I work), my church and my work. It is my desire to do His will and follow His leading from day to day.
