About Steve

SteveBI am delighted to serve Christ in Abbotsford with the people of South Abbotsford Church. My key pastoral contributions on the team are in preaching, engaging people in mission, and supporting 65+ people.

I have been married to a remarkable woman and my best friend, Karen, since 1974.  We have four wonderful married children and a soccer size team of fabulous grandchildren.  

I began in pastoral leadership in 1974 and have led churches in Alberta and BC - happily leading South Abbotsford Church from 1997 to 2004. That year I was privileged to become the Conference Minister for the BC Mennonite Brethren Churches and following in 2011, I joined the team of Power To Change. Since 2014 I have been glad to be back on the South Abbotsford pastoral team and serving in the national leadership of MB Churches in Canada. 

As you get to know me I trust that what you see is the evidence of my daily prayer, "Dear Jesus, I want you to be the center of my life and through your power I commit to serve and obey you anytime, anywhere at any cost, to do anything."  I hope that when we are together, laughter and encouragement between us will abound.

You can count on seeing me smile when I'm with Karen and the family, driving my VW convertible, singing great music, working in my yard, riding my "roadie" bike, or playing golf - which might make you laugh out loud!
