He is founding co-director of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Urban Ministries Winnipeg with his Australian wife Kim. They are in the midst of adopting their first child from Ethiopia. He has served with YWAM in Canada since 1994, bringing him to 9 nations.
In addition to writing for several blogs and zines, Jamie published his first book several years ago. He is currently working on a new book on missional community inspired by the example of St. Francis of Assisi and the Franciscans. In the midst of research and writing for this project, he became personally inspired by Francis, a key source of inspiration for founding Little Flowers Community.
