I am a Christian, husband, papa, pastor, and author—and thankful to God for each.
A graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary, I ministered in the States for over 15 years and am now ministering in Toronto as lead pastor at Morningstar Christian Fellowship—a church of over 70 ethnicities, located in one of the most diverse communities in the world. I have traveled to every continent except Antarctica—because, as my youngest son has observed, penguins don’t need the gospel. My wife Chau and I have four children: Edmond (from Russia), Ransom and Avery (from Vietnam), and Eva (from Arkansas).
I have contributed articles to The Gospel Coalition, For the Church, Servants of Grace, Gospel-Centered Discipleship, Fathom Magazine, and Third Millennium. My writing has been featured on The Gospel Coalition, Challies.com, ThomRainer.com, and Christianity.com, among others. I authored Grow: the Command to Every Expanding Joy and Adorned: How to Grow a Biblically Beautiful Church. My newest book Behold: an Invitation to Wonder is scheduled for release September 2021 and can be pre-ordered now. I also publish Daily Devotion, which is now a top-rated iTunes/Android app with over half a million downloads.
My passion is to help people see the relevance and sufficiency of God’s Word for daily living. If you see the need for that in your life then—please linger here awhile, look around, enjoy the resources, and share them with others. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
