Gerald was born and raised in Victoria, BC.
He recently completed a 30-year career as project leader in the commercial electrical industry. His greatest pleasure was mentoring young men to become leaders themselves. (He really enjoys building things as well!) Gerald is currently in a partnership with his son Jordan in their technology/manufacturing business.
Gerald has been married for 28 years to his wife Dawn. They have 2 adult children: Jordan, (married to Shawneen), and Kara who is currently on staff at Briercrest College. Gerald and Dawn are also recent grandparents.
Gerald was a youth leader with Youth for Christ for 9 years and was on the board of another non-profit organization as hospitality director for 4 years.
Gerald and Dawn have been attending Saanich Baptist Church for the past 15 years. They are involved in several areas of church ministry, Dawn with toddler care and Gerald on the servant leader team and building maintenance. Together they also help with morning coffee service, Mexico missions/base upgrades and more recently hosting a young adult bible study.
Gerald and Dawn are very thrilled about the work God is doing at SBC. Watching a body of believers take their next steps and grow their relationship with Christ is so encouraging. Gerald is excited to see where God will take us all next!
