His first Sunday as a paid official (associate pastor) was June 4. He succeeds Nathan Klassen, who was interim pastor at Zion Church in February 2012 and who became full-time in April 2014; Nathan resigned the end of February 2017.

We who live in The Banner’s coverage area have a national treasure virtually next door. It is the oldest of its kind in Manitoba. It covers an area of 3000 km, has over 400 km of hiking, bike, horse and wagon trails and, except for the lingering effects of the occasional forest fire, remains virtually as it was at the end of the ice age. This treasure is Riding Mountain National Park.
