BiographyI view the profession of an instructor in a confessional setting as one that constitutes a unique blend of vocations: teacher, scholar, and pastor. I believe that the entire undertaking of teaching is one that is to be marked with a sense of joyful discovery. Like the one who unearths the pearl of great price (Mt. 13:45-46), our encounter with the revelation of God in Christ will naturally lead to a transformed life. Success, for me as an instructor, is when students show evidence of developing and maintaining a sustained, critical reflection on the integration of orthodoxy and orthopraxy. When they, and I, can consider what the Lord has done and say with the Psalmist, “it is marvelous in our eyes” (Ps. 118:23).
I spent much of my formative years across the provinces that constitute western Canada, and so feel very much at home living and teaching in Caronport. My vocational journey has taken a number of turns. Before settling into my role as an educator, I spent a number of years working with people with disabilities in both Vancouver and Calgary.
