I was finishing a counseling degree at Oak Hills Bible College and was not sure I wanted to be in an office all day.  I asked God to show me if maybe Camping was where He wanted me.  So, in 1999 I did a double internship in counseling and camping at Camp Forest Springs. That’s where I fell in love with camping and started in 2000 as the Assistant Camp Director, responsible for maintenance and programming, at Miracle Bible Camp.  In 2004, I was recruited by Camp JIM as the ministry began the camp reconstruction process.  In those days there was just two staff and by God’s provision I have seen that grow to 10 plus.  I married my wonderful wife in 1996 and we are blessed with 7 daughters, 2 sons as well as a few critters.   As a family, we travel singing at churches, doing pulpit supply as well as we make maple syrup.  For fun we camp, love the outdoors, deer hunt and even ride snowmobiles when we have free time.
