CONVERSION: I came to saving faith in April 1984 at Grace Immanuel Bible Church during a marriage counseling session. My life was a mess, the result of living to gratify the flesh. The gospel was faithfully presented, God graciously regenerated me, and gave me the gift of faith. I repented of my sin and believed on Christ. Though my unbelieving wife departed and pursued divorce, God used this hardship to kindle in my heart a passion for His Word and a dependence on it fueled by a deep conviction about its power and authority.
CALL TO MINISTRY: I was called to ministry shortly after coming to faith in Christ. I was ordained in 1992. My calling is to be a pastor, and my gifting to faithfully exposit the Word of God with humility, yet boldly in Christ. This has been my ministry these past 12 years at CrossRoads Church.
PERSONAL: I am a Canadian citizen with permanent-legal-resident status. I have been married to Teresa Bannon since 09-26-87. God chose not to bless us with children. I am an accomplished musician and a former film animator, having worked on shows like Scooby Doo and The Flintstones.
