Married for 33 years, Dinah and I have been members of Saanich Baptist Church since 1996, where we’ve been blessed by the community & fellowship, Pastor Steve’s sermons and leadership, and the church’s vision and actions. In addition to volunteering in the community, we’ve served in a number of SBC ministries over the years (e.g., leading College & Careers ministry; leading the first youth group/college & careers missions team to Mexico in 1998; currently, hosting one of SBC’s Home Churches).
I was honoured to serve 9 years on SBC’s Ministry/Executive Board, 6 years as Chair. In 2007, in consultation with staff, I completed and presented to leadership a 6-month Systems Review of SBC. I was asked, in 2014, to chair a Task Force on the Role of Women in Leadership. In 2016/17, while serving as a volunteer member of the church’s staff, I participated as a non-voting member of the Servant Leaders Board. Prior to our recent move to on-line services, I oversaw the Ushers and Greeters teams for the Wilkinson Road campus morning services.
These and other experiences confirmed to me the remarkable willingness and commitment of SBC’s congregation to serve our Lord. I’m eager to see God’s plans unfold for His people at SBC -- and how we can be the hands and feet of Jesus to serve and bless others in our neighbourhoods, our city, and wherever we happen to be.
