I am married to Jo (more than 50 years) and the father of Jamie and “Poppa” to Rundle. I am a child of the manse. I entered Presbyterian College after sensing a call to ministry in 1973, graduating in 1976 with the Calvin Gold Medal and Graduate Scholarship. Following ordination, I began my first charge in Ajax, Ontario followed by churches in Kitchener, London, Regina, Sylvan Lake, and finally Prince George. I guess I just couldn’t keep a job. Upon retiring, I had a number of part-time ministries, mainly in Montreal before coming to Calgary in 2013. I became the Pastoral Associate at VAPC in January 2014, and have enjoyed the visiting immensely. I also began the Stephen Ministry here, a programme of one-on-one trained, effective caring by lay people. In addition to my work academic in theology, I earned a degree in Fine Arts from Concordia University and continue to enjoy painting. Before blowing out my knees, I was an avid hiker and cyclist, but still enjoy camping. A fun claim-to-fame is that I once conducted the Regina Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Mozart’s Overture to the Marriage of Figaro.
