I have been in Ministry for many years as a Regular Force Military Chaplain, in civilian parishes, and providing Spiritual Care to Hospitals, Acute Care Homes and at End-of Life.
My experience officiating at funerals has been diverse, and includes Celebrations of Life, Graveside Interments, Veterans (with requisite ceremonial including correct protocols) Aboriginal, Anglican Eucharists, Scattering of Ashes both on Land and at Sea. I will work with Family and Next of Kin to design a Service that is meaningful an respectful of their wishes.
Looking back, I am grateful for the experiences that have formed and fashioned my life. Having had a multi-varied upbringing, culminating with adoption at the age of 14, I can say with certainty these early lessons have led me to the acceptance of life’s challenges.
Now looking forward, having left behind both many years of: 9 to 5 jobs, and a comparable career as a singer, song writer, recording artist, and television personality, I see a road paved with the past leading to a future of helping others through difficult times.
I am truly motivated to be a shoulder to people dealing with the loss of a loved one and look forward to being of service to your family.
I was blessed to serve for many years as a senior Ordained Chaplain at the Vancouver Unitarian Church. I have spent the past 12 years in a vibrant independent ministry, which has now grown to become “The Chaplains.
I am no stranger to grief. I am now privileged to serve alongside my distinguished and caring colleagues, Michael and Susan, as we help families in need.
I have been a proud single Father of my daughter, Maddy, who brought home to my heart the meaning and importance of family and belonging. She has helped me become a hunter and gatherer of life values and taught me the importance of kindness."
I am an Ordained Inter-denominational Minister.
Everything I do is personalized, including celebrations of life and memorial services – honoring relationship and time with someone who has passed on.
In addition to providing healing through ceremony, I help individuals, couples and families celebrate such pivotal events as a wedding or the birth of a child.
In our spiritual self we have immediate access to the power we need to shape our life experience the way we desire. We are whole, not broken beings; powerful, intelligent and able. This power is within. My gift and passion is to help people realize their essentialness and value, their strengths and successes.
