We seek to be a safe and welcoming environment in which Baptists can share all concerns and points of view without fear of being marginalised.

The CABF is a Canada-wide fellowship composed of both individuals and Churches. Currently, our member Churches are located in Nova Scotia and Ontario, but we are open to receiving new members from any province or territory - click here for details.

He has served on the Boards of both Canadian Baptist Ministries and Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, including a term as President of CBM. He and wife Joanne co-host a national online support group for Parents of LGBTQ+s. His presentation will offer insights from his pastoral and parenting experiences and some of his scientific, historical, theological and Biblical learnings. There will also be a panel of three Congregational leaders from across Canada, one from the Maritimes, one from Ontario, and one from the West, will share of their journeys with their congregations in arriving at their welcoming and affirming stance, and the impact of going public with that position of inclusiveness.
