CrossRoads Church

My greatest desire is to see people miraculously transformed by Jesus Christ. As Lead Pastor at CrossRoads Church in Decatur, Texas, I’m blessed to quarterback a non-traditional, fast-growing congregation where lives are being changed and healthy spiritual legacies are being formed.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, and have ministered full-time for 25 years. When I’m not studying or casting vision with our dynamic group of leaders, I enjoy investing quality time with my family, connecting with friends over coffee, and going for long runs on nearby country roads. My beautiful and gifted wife Dana and I have been married for 24 years and we have a handsome teenaged son, Gabe.

For more that a year I have been privileged to work with Scott McBride at Coachwell. Not only has be helped me maximize my potential and organize my priorities, but Scott has also been a stalwart ally through a season of tremendous growth in our organization. I believe that any successful leader must continue to learn, grow, and develop and Scott has stimulated that process for me. Personally, and professionally, I believe that I am healthier, more effective, and more productive that ever as a result of Scott’s influence. The health of my family and my church are proof that my time with Scott is time well spent.
