I served for 31 years from 1987 to 2018 as the Rector of St. Simon’s Church North Vancouver, B.C. My current focus is on writing books and speaking at conferences. Ordained in 1980, I have also served at St. Philip’s Vancouver and St. Matthew’s Abbotsford. My wife Janice and I have three sons James, Mark, and Andrew. I served as Chaplain and President for Alpha Canada.
As the National Chair for Anglican Renewal Ministries of Canada, I was one of three co-signers of the Montreal Declaration of Anglican Essentials.
For the past 30 years, I have been privileged to write over 500 articles as a columnist on spiritual issues for local North Vancouver newspapers. In the last number of years, I have had the opportunity to lead conferences and retreats in Honduras, Rwanda, Washington State, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Newfoundland, and Toronto.
