I accepted Jesus as my savior at age 17 and shortly after the Holy Spirit empowered me to preach the gospel. I dedicated the summer after graduating High School to a mission’s trip in the West Bank of Israel. It was during this summer of ministry to the poor and hurting people of a small town that God completely changed the direction of my life. I am a creative person and throughout High School I was planning on a career in advertising and design. Now, I felt God calling me to become a pastor.
During my years in Bible College, I married my wife Esther who shares my passion for ministry. God has opened many doors of ministry for us. We have had a fruitful ministry preaching the gospel and ministering to the needs of families and the poor. God has used us many times to lead outreach teams here in Ontario and on short-term trips to the USA, Africa, the Dominican Republic, and the Philippines. I have traveled to Poland and Ukraine, teaching and encouraging other pastors. I enjoy mentoring others and I have mentored many individuals who today are in full-time ministry. I am blessed to have pastored in five great churches, and Esther has always been a significant part of each of the ministries. In each ministry, God has used us to fulfill His plan, and we have continued relationships with people from each church.
Today, I co-pastor a church that has become very active in community outreach and missions. In addition to preaching, teaching, prayer and visitation I give direct leadership to missions and the ministries of the church. I work with the board and staff to set direction and priorities for the church.
