Lead Pastor

What I do: Lead Pastor 

Spouse/Kids: Shaleah and I have three great kids. Tate, Spencer and Alisha.

Education and Experience: My formal education granted me a Bachelor degree in theology and a Master’s degree in Biblical communication. I’ve served in a couple of churches as Associate Pastor and we went overseas to help plant churches amongst an amazing group of people who previously didn’t follow Jesus.

Book/Author that has impacted me most: A few of the guys who have impacted me are Timothy Keller and John Piper. There are others but then the list starts to grow too long.

Favourite Scripture: Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

A few of my favorite things:  Mountains! Get me on top of a great big peak and I’m happy. If I can’t climb, then let me go running.

Hope and Vision for Courtenay Baptist:  

Gospel! The gospel is central to everything. What I mean by ‘gospel’ is the good news of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and ascension. The church is all about learning to apply the gospel to each and every part of our lives together by learning God’s words of life that He gave us in the Bible.

Community: The gospel forms us into an incredible community that cares for each other, puts each other first, and works together.

Mission: The gospel gives us a very clear mission. We are to make disciples who will make disciples. I believe that we should organize the church around this mission and keep that as front and center so that God will be glorified in all that we do.
