Michael and his family arrived in Drumheller May of 2008. This is Michael's first Lead Pastor role, having served as Associate and Youth Pastor in different churches in Edmonton, Alberta and Oakville, Ontario. Michael and Wendy also served in Colombia, SA as missionaries for three years, in the role of administrator and teacher. Prior to being in ministry, Michael was a Systems Engineer where he was a programmer and teacher. The family love Drumheller, and especially the church as it is a wonderful place of healing, learning, and growing. Within the community, the family enjoys the beautiful backdrop of the town, taking Summer (our beautiful Golden Retriever) on long walks in the hills, drinking copious amounts of coffee, and seeing God move in people's lives.
