I live in downtown Toronto, Canada. My main calling is to help build Christ’s kingdom by teaching and church-planting.
I am currently the leader of a new church-plant: Newlife Church, Toronto.
I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and make part of my living by teaching short courses on programming, mostly related to the internet (Java, databases, Drupal etc.) The other part of my living (the best part) is in kingdom work, teaching, preaching and pastoring. Some of the things I have written can be found on loveintruth.com, my theology and teaching website.
I am married to Anne, and have a son Luke, a daughter Jessica and a large Maine Coone called Timothy.

What worship means

In many churches today there is chaos in worship. The tragedy is that so few seem to be looking to the Scriptures for their principles. People say, 'That sounds worshipful' or 'That doesn't sound worshipful', or 'I can worship God in this kind of service'. But they are making a totally subjective judgement as…
