I’ve had the opportunity to do some pretty cool things in my life. As I write this, I’m preparing to head over to Israel for my 40th trip. I hosted and produced my own weekly TV show filmed on location in Israel for over 10 years. In 2011, I authored the best-selling book “Understanding Jesus” and published my 2nd book “What Would Jesus Read” in 2012. I’ve produced dozens of teaching segments for DVD and TV. I’ve appeared as a guest on dozens of shows over the years, and most recently finished out my TV career as the daily host of 100 Huntley Street, Canada’s longest running daily show. My journey has taken me all around the world, several times over. I’ve ministered in Trinidad, Jamaica, England, Australia, Italy, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Mainland China and Hong Kong. I’ve traveled extensively across Canada and some parts of the United States.
I’m exhausted just writing about all this! After almost 15 years of globe-trotting, I’m excited to now be in one place on a regular basis. Today, I serve as the full-time Teaching Pastor at PORTICO Community Church, in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. AND…I love it! Don’t get me wrong…I absolutely loved it when I was traveling. I met some amazing people and got to experience some pretty incredible things. God really began working on my heart during the summer of 2016. Out of nowhere, I had the great desire to teach. That’s when I knew that it was time for me to step down from First Century Foundations. Through an incredible series of events, which I’ll blog about at another time, the opportunity came to serve in my current role at PORTICO.
So, what can you expect from this blog? To be honest…whatever is on my mind and heart at the time. Many times, it will be a reflection or continuation of the message that I preach on Sunday (which you can live stream and also watch previous sermons online). Sometimes it will be random observations about faith, love and life. Sometimes, maybe a rant or two.
I’ll do my best to blog on a regular basis. I’ll try to write as much as I can while I’m away in Israel over the next 2 weeks. Keep checking back as I continue to blog.
I’ll also post the links across all my social media platforms. Well, that’s it for now. We’ll see you out there!
