I am an author, speaker and community enthusiast. Some of my books include non-fiction titles such as “The Cost of Community: Jesus, St. Francis & Life in the Kingdom” (InterVarsity Press) and “Vulnerable Faith: Missional Living in the Radical Way of St. Patrick” (Paraclete Press), as well as fiction, such as “The Last Verdict”, a story from death row. (For a full list of my titles, visit the Books page).
I am a pastoral leader at Little Flowers Community, a Franciscan-Anabaptist faith community in Winnipeg’s downtown West End. I am co-director of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Urban Ministries Winnipeg. I am also a founding partner of Chiara House , a Christian community housing initiative.
Most importantly, I am husband to my Australian wife, Kim, and father to my Ethiopian son, Micah, and soon to be born daughter (coming Dec. 2016)!
This website is place dedicated to exploring ideas about life, faith, writing, justice and more. In addition to my books and this site, I am contributor to several online publications, such as The Huffington Post, Red Letter Christians, ChurchLeaders.com and elsewhere. I have also published in magazines and other print media, largely focusing on the call the Christian community, discipleship and missionality.
Our ministry is one that relies entirely upon the generosity of people like you. I am not paid in my primary role as a pastor, supporting ourselves through our position as missionaries with YWAM Canada. While we continue to find ways to live more simply and subsidize missionary income through other means, we still rely on your generosity in this work. The nature of our ministry in this inner city community requires a level of time and energy that has not allowed us to be fully bi-vocational. We would like to ask you to prayerfully consider becoming part of our prayer & financial support team.
