As a learner, I love seeing what’s possible. Especially when I can help others steward their God-given abilities to live out God’s will. It’s exciting that our dream for a multi-ethnic church, where people use their God-given talents and strengths to serve the Kingdom, is now a reality!
You can often see me preaching and teaching at Cornerstone. I also help lead senior staff, partner with our board, work on strategic ministry, visioning, and I’m active in our counselling ministry.
I’ve been in ministry for 35+ years, received a Ph.D. in New Testament from the University of Aberdeen, and was an adjunct professor at Tyndale Theological Seminary. I live here in Markham with my wife, Libby, and our two children. I look forward to meeting you and working with you for God’s Kingdom.
I’m passionate about seeing youth grow as Christians and helping them to be better members of our community. I’ve been here since 2007 and it’s been amazing to see many of our youth growing and being baptized. Just call me YourFriendlyNeighbourhoodYouthPastor.
I live in Markham where I serve as a Community Partner on the Greensborough Public School Parents Council and lead the Markham-Stouffville Youth network to support other youth pastors and leaders. I’m also a member of the Canadian Youth Network because I believe God will change the lives of youth across Canada.
I received my M.Div. in Youth and Family Ministries from Tyndale Theological Seminary. I’ve loved being a Youth Pastor since 2000 and hope its where God keeps me serving!
I love people! At a very young age God began to show me that there were people that lived differently than me in the world and that I could use the gifts and resources He gave me to love others. Over the years I have felt God’s heartbeat for justice through fundraising projects, community outreach, global service trips, and summer camp. I have developed a passion to educate, empower, and invite others to experience the joys of joining God’s fight against injustice in this world!
I love Cornerstone’s beautiful heart for our community! I love connecting with and empowering our church family to extend Jesus’s love to others and seeing people encounter God by getting out into the world, meeting people, and loving and serving our community. I am thrilled to be able to connect with our community to create powerful and caring outreach ministries to serve our neighbours. My role includes overseeing our local and global outreach, working with the amazing outreach teams at Cornerstone, and building our partnerships with organizations.
I am a big fan of crazy adventures, visiting new places and people, and long hikes with my dog. I have lived in Markham my whole life and joined the Cornerstone team in 2021.
“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” – 2 Cor. 9:12
This passage resonates. Often unseen but vital to the operation, the Facility team’s objective to ensure a safe, clean and welcoming space in which to encounter Jesus, should return positive expressions from all who enter, to the glory of God.
With a passion for service excellence, I am excited to support the ministry programs of Cornerstone Church in this position, coordinating building, systems, and grounds maintenance as well as rental use.
Prior to joining Cornerstone Church, I managed facility operations for a charitable organization located in Stouffville.
My husband, Kirk and I, live in our Stouffville ‘empty nest’. Jesus is our cornerstone; we trace His faithful hand throughout our lives and continue to build our history with Him
Passions also include health & wellness, music and movement. When not ‘on the job’, I could be found leading a group fitness class at the leisure centre, volunteering at the local thrift shop, crafting at home or enjoying a forest walk with friends.
I’m excited to see how God will use my skills and talents to contribute to the ministries of Cornerstone Church.
