I was born in the Netherlands, immigrated to Canada when I was three years old, and grew up in a Christian home in Fergus.
I met my wife, Dixie while in college in British Columbia. We moved back to Ontario and have now been married for more than 18 years. We started attending Lakeside in 2000 and have been actively involved in small groups and ushering since that time, and more recently involved with the photography team. My walk with the Lord is of great importance to me. I am passionate about encouraging others to grow in their faith and embrace their responsibilities, while permitting the same to spur me onward in my own pursuit to walk rightly before and with the Lord.
My life verse is Matthew 6:21: “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also.”
