I was born in Saskatoon. My family moved to Lloydminster when I was 3 and we lived there until I graduated from High School in 2001.
I attended Millar College of the Bible and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Ministries. I spent my summers working for an oilfield inspection company as I saved money for College.
My first pastoral role was at the Virden Alliance Church in Manitoba. I did a two year internship and was able to serve as Associate Pastor of youth ministries for a total of eight years and was ordained in the Christian & Missionary Alliance.
I am so thankful to serve Lawson Heights Alliance and live in Saskatoon. I have greatly appreciated the KidZone leaders, youth leaders, and friends at church. I also volunteer for the community association, serve as the District Youth Ministry Facitilitator, serve on the district Ordaining council and serve as chair for the National Youth Network of Alliance Youth pastors.
DEUTERONOMY 6:5-7 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
This has always been one of my favourite passages in the Scriptures. Jesus quoted it in Matthew 22 to clearly articulate what it looks like to believe in God. Now that I’m a parent, verse 7 has taken on a new meaning as I get to share the faith with my children.
