Q: How did you navigate the decision to work for CBM?

The decision to join the team at CBM came as a bit of a surprise to me! I have served at Bromley Road Baptist Church for nine years and have loved being part of this church. I was not looking to leave, but when I received an email from CBM about the vacant position, I thought it would be a great one to apply to, but maybe in a year or two if it’s open. After a few days of thinking, I emailed Adrian Gardner to ask a little about the role. This got me more excited about the opportunity, and I shared the idea with some trusted friends and mentors to see what they thought about it. Through conversations and prayer, they encouraged me to take a chance and apply. I did, and as the interviews progressed, God seemed to make it clearer to me that CBM is somewhere I want to be.

Q: What are you most looking forward to in your new role?

I am looking forward to seeing how I can come alongside pastors and leaders and help them live out Christ’s mission as the church. I look forward to building relationships with people and seeing how we can serve the church globally together.

Q: What unique skills do you bring to CBM?

One of the ways that God has gifted me is in building relationships. I am genuinely curious about people and want to help them as best I can. I look forward to getting to know our partners and hearing their stories. In addition, I am strong in my teaching ability. As a child, I had wanted to become a high school teacher, and while that never materialized, God has used this gift of teaching and love for people to help those around me grow in their relationship with Christ.
It may not be a unique skill, but having grown up in Montreal, I speak and understand French. While it is a bit rusty, as I have not used it much in the past few years, I look forward to improving that skill so I can connect with some of our partners and churches in Quebec.

Prayer Points

Pray for me as I transition to this new role. Pray that God will guide me in how I can best serve church leaders in Ontario and Quebec and adjust to not living in the rhythms of pastoral ministry.

Pray that my family will adapt well to this shift in my work. I will be away from home more, so it will change our family rhythms and responsibilities at home.
