Having started camp work at 16 mucking out stalls, he has worked at both small & large camps and in almost every area of camp work. Whether it’s helping in the kitchen, teaching rock climbing to SALTers, leading/mentoring staff or leading staff prayer, Mike has a heart for camp ministry and the Kingdom impact it can make in each person’s life.
Mike serves as the chair of the Ontario Committee for CCI/Canada and is a past board member of the Ontario Camps Association. He is a grad of Ontario Bible College (now Tyndale) as a camping major.
Mike has been married to Elaine for 30 years, has three grown daughters, two sons-in-law and is now grandpa to Olivia Marie. His favourite colour is blue. He likes country music and wears cowboy boots. Mike’s favourite food is most anything off the BBQ. His hobbies include woodworking and building things at home.
Mike’s mission is to develop students to become the next generation of Christian leaders. Widjiitiwin is the perfect place to do this leading summer staff, SALTers and campers!
His favourite quote is, “You can always cut open the apple and find out how many seeds are inside, but there’s no way you can cut the seed and find out how many apples are in it”.
