I have been a follower of Christ Jesus since 1991, when I had a powerful encounter with Jesus in Cameroon, Central Africa. Since then I've been trying to integrate my passions for Jesus, and His Church into my life and ministry. I have served and lived in Africa for over 10 years and have been working internationally for over 15 years. After spending 8 years church planting in an inner-city neighbourhood of Ottawa, I am now serving part-time with the Navigators and part-time as the Associate Pastor of Discipleship at Bilberry Creek Baptist Church in Orleans, a suburb of Ottawa. My wife, Pascale and I and our two children, Elijah and Malaika now live on a small hobby farm nestled in the forested hill country east of Ottawa.
