"I desire to see people's lives changed, minds renewed, and their wounded hearts healed
as they encounter the love and peace of Father God."
In 1974 I was born into a small Christian minister’s family in The Netherlands. From a very young age I had the privilege to encounter God. I became active in church and Christian youth camps and while teaching myself to play the piano I started to lead worship at the age of 13.
I studied Theology at the 'Centrale Pinkster Bijbelschool' in The Netherlands and in 1997 I received additional training at SOM in Canada. There I met my wonderful wife Jessica. After graduation and marriage we served as Assistant Pastors at 'Evangeliegemeente Sion' in The Netherlands.
In these early years it became clear that worship would be an integral part of my ministry and I connected with 'Fatherheart Ministries' and 'Partners in Harvest'.
In 2002 we moved (back) to Canada where I was asked to join 'Singing Waters Ministries' as their Worship Pastor, yearly overseeing over 300 times of worship until 2010.
That year Father God opened up opportunities to travel internationally and train others in the area of worship, peace and walking with God. Many have reported that they experience a strong sense of Gods peace and presence when they encounter my worship and teaching.
Through the years I have been blessed to minister in a wide range of churches and denominations across Asia, Europe and North America and to see my MUSIC reach people around the world.
My biggest hobby is to watch our beautiful daughters, Unique Destiny and Acacia Joy, growing up in their gifting and to invest in their talents!
I am currently the pastor at The Well Church in Orangeville, Ontario. Please feel free to come to any of our services and let's worship God together!
PS. My ongoing music project is called 'Creation Music' : A daily app/podcast to help you finding deeper REST in Gods presence!
