Because it's a crime not to barbecue when it's ten degrees out - even if you still have two feet of snow on your deck!

A rainy day witnessed one of our most creative events in the morning and a quiet but fruitful talk between faith groups in the afternoon. Thanks for a great week - enjoy the final photoblog!
A photoblog of our fifth and final day. Our final morning begins with a little rain and one of our most abstract events of the week: “The Tree.”  First, Summer and Elise drew up a tree… Then Trenters were asked to imagine that the tree was God… And draw themselves doing something - anything in relation to the tree. People regularly expressed how much the question made them think, which was exactly the purpose - to mov...

An apology to campus, a good turnout for both talks, and Carlo strutting his stuff. Christian Awareness Week just gets better and better!
A photoblog of our fourth (and second last) day. Another eleven o’clock podium event to start the day… this is almost getting routine for me and my friend, the table! (Oh, and those other people involved in this whole process! ;-) ) Many hands makes light work as we stake out our spot… especially for the photographer! Today’s event: an apology booth. Our conviction was that instead of defending ourselves and denouncing...

Another great morning event followed by another small group talk plus an awesome breakfast in Bowmanville for yours truly! Day two photoblog for the win!
A photoblog of our second day. My day began with my weekly commute to class in Toronto, which meant that I would miss the prayer booth taking place this morning. However, upon arriving at the 401 I was stopped in my tracks… a major accident near Bowmanville had resulted in all four lanes being closed. After travelling a mere 2 km between 7:00 and 9:00 I chose to turn around and join my Oikos friends at Trent - but not without grabbing a de...

As of 11:30 today I am done the last traditional class of my seminary "career." After four years of driving to Toronto to meet with my fellow students once a week, I am done. Unlike when I finished at Trent, this moment is simply sweet (without any bitter); God is opening up enough other doors that I am excited to end this chapter, and am even more excited to look forward to completing the last couple of correspondence credits that, God willing, will allow me to graduate (again) in January!

'Paul instructs Christians to inculturate their children into Christianity. This is a staggering injunction, since there is no such thing as a Christian culture. He is telling them to create a Christian culture, and that's just what they did. Western civilisation is a product of this endeavour. Western culture is not equivalent to the Kingdom of God but the story of one cannot be told without the story of the other.' -Douglas Wilson, Why Children Matter Part 3

'If you are focused on the method (of educating your children) you aren't thinking like a Christian. If you are focused on the goal (fear and admonition of the Lord) you are in good fellowship.' -Douglas Wilson, Why Children Matter Part 3

A probably-too-long blog post on the topic of Jesus movies. In short: let's not be ninjad.
My wife and I have just begun watching the Bible miniseries done on the History Channel recently, and I know many people who are excited to go see either of the two movies that have been released in theatres the past bit, Son of God and Noah. It would seem that we are in the midst of a revival of sorts when it comes to media based on the Bible, and particularly striking is how well-made these films and television series are. These are not the Jes...

An apologetics video-turned-conversation and two successful events on the podium. Another good (albeit way too cold) day!
A photoblog of our third day. Today the order is reversed: we started with a talk and then moved on to events on the podium. Except in this case the talk was an apologetics video! We managed to double our attendance from our last two talks. Two people… new Oikos record! As such, our video quickly became a theological chat instead. After our chat we get ready for the first of two events, a petition-signing asking the governm...

Story
Tagline
Student of Christ and Christians, husband and father of one.
Introduction
I am a Christian, student, and husband and father of one.

I have been engaged in various forms of ministry since 2007. I currently work with youth and young adults in Ontario, preach and lead workshops at churches and events, and assist with summer camp ministries for Cree youth in northern Quebec. Me and my family have been living in Peterborough, Ontario since October 2013, where I am working with students at Trent University, providing mentorship, leadership, and resources designed to help Christians share the Gospel relationally on campus. I have an MTS from Tyndale Seminary and am currently studying there via correspondence towards a ThM in Church History, with a focus on theological developments in the latter part of the 20th century.
