I’m a husband to Melanie and father to 3 great kids. I’m originally from the state of Texas but have called Canada home for 12 years now. Before planting into Toronto I lead Anchor Point Church in Alliston Ontario.
I’ve lived in and traveled to many major cities around the world, but there is something about Toronto that has captured my heart. The influence, diversity and culture in this great city has made its way to the world stage. I’m so excited to be apart of a church plant in this city that has the opportunity to bring the gospel of hope in Jesus to the neighbourhoods of Toronto and and to the nations.
During the week you’ll usually find me working in my wood shop, rock climbing at Boulderz, coaching little baseball or having a pint at Indie Ale House.
My wife and I have recently started side business called Burgeon, where we make and sell wood and ceramic products.
Family: I am married to One wife, Taryn-Lee Dube and we have 4 amazing children. We answered the call from God and moved from Zimbabwe to Canada.
Toronto, how I see it: I love the city of Toronto with all of it’s rich diversity. I believe the diversity of life and culture creates a great opportunity for the message of God’s Grace to ring true for many.
My Interests: I love Bass fishing (actually it’s an addiction) My dream is to one day fish professionally and lead a church ☺ I have a passion for entrepreneurship. I am always exploring new business opportunities.
I am also a bit of an MOOC FREAK (Massive Open Online Course) Apart from studying theology, I am a champion of the MOOC model and the opportunities it offers for all. Some of my MOOC achievements include:
Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Business Management, Diploma in Social Media Marketing. I also have a Diploma in Sports Management and Marketing from Boston City Campus is South Africa.
