I’m originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia and have lived there most of my life. I grew up Catholic but had no concept of what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus. As I got older I strayed further and further away from my faith, living a life that was very much ingrained in youth culture. I was not seeking to grow closer to Jesus nor did I think I needed to. I thought money and success were the answer to everything and only turned to God when I was desperate for something. Everything changed when I was introduced to a CCO missionary at my university campus in Halifax. He asked me to join a weekly faith study and I accepted because I was curious. During the next few months, the seeds of God were planted into my life and that was what started the four year journey that brought me to where I am today; where Jesus is everything to me and I have given my life to Him.

This year I will be a campus missionary at Simon Fraser University in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. This means I’ll be on the campus everyday, encountering and interacting with students, building deep relationships, all with the purpose of spreading the love of Christ. I am unbelievably excited to move to the other coast of Canada (as I’m an east coast boy) and get to watch God change lives in another part of the world!

ONGOING PRAYER REQUESTS

Please pray for all of the students at Simon Fraser University and ultimately all young people across Canada; that they would come to know Jesus and have true peace in their lives. Please pray for me, that I may come closer to and become more like Jesus everyday.
