Rehoboth is a Hebrew name that is given to a well in Genesis 26:22. It means: a place of flourishing. Just as the people cherished this well that was given to them by God, we cherish our place that God has given us in the City of Hamilton. From here, we worship God and serve our neighbours.
United points to our desire to unify ourselves with like-minded believers and to work together to bring glory to God.
Reformed has its origin in the 16th Century Reformation, at which time the Church was reformed by a returning to the Bible as the rule for all of life. We seek also to be continually reforming, that is, continually turning and returning to God’s Word to direct our lives.
Church means “the called out ones.” It is those who are called together in new spiritual life in Jesus out of their old spiritual darkness. God has called the Church to be the pillar and ground of the truth. It has existed since the beginning of the world, and will be until its end, since it is God Himself Who calls His people out, gathering them, protecting them and preserving them.

I am married to my beautiful wife Rachel and we have 4 wonderful children. I became the pastor at Rehoboth in January 2016. Prior to coming to Hamilton, I was a pastor in Abbotsford, B.C. I received my seminary training at Mid America Reformed Seminary in Dyer, IN. I graduated in 2007. I enjoy playing sports, reading books, fishing and spending time outside with my family.
