Contact : Pastor Al
Al was born in Vancouver and did most of his growing up in Surrey in a non-Christian home. After coming to faith at age 18 and a brief career in retail management, Al attended Bible school obtaining his Bachelor of Religious Education as well as his Master of Divinity. He was ordained in 1997 and over the years has served in a variety of ministry capacities including camping ministry, youth ministry and lead Pastor as well, serving churches in Surrey, Saskatchewan and Sechelt before moving to Richmond.
Al loves spending time with his family – he is married to Patricia and together they have an adult daughter, a young and growing son they adopted from South Africa, and an adorable granddaughter. He loves playing board games as well as sports like golf and soccer (none of which he claims to be very good at) as well as walking and going on bike rides with his family. And of course, he loves a good cup of coffee. Most of all he loves preaching God’s Word and shepherding the people of God, and is passionate about seeing people grow closer to Christ and helping them to that end.
