In 1991, he was invited to serve as pastor on board the M/V Anastasis, a medical, missionary ship operated by Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Since leaving that ministry four years later, Gareth has traveled to many countries, encouraging pastors and missionaries.
He has moderated at conferences on Revival, in the USA, Canada and Europe.
He is married to Anne and they have three married daughters, eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Gareth and Anne live in Victoria, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

On this webpage you will find some of the topics he teaches, listen to some mp3 sermons, view some photos, read some poetry and, hopefully, be encouraged and blessed.
First, however, please read the latest newsletter.
Our grand-daughter Kayley has been accepted at the local hospital as a Pharmacy Technician; her husband Nic will attend our local Community college for the next two years. Therefore they are moving to Victoria with their three young girls, arriving May 1st. We need prayers to find accomodation - rents here are twice what they are used to!!

Continuing to enjoy weekly times of prayer at our local University. On March 3rd I spoke at their University Christian Ministry meeting (UCM).
I have been invited to speak at another Men's retreat in June (3rd - 5th) - this time at Lumby in the Okanagan Valley (central BC). I anticipate teaching on "Soar Like the Eagle".

The men's music group continues to be a blessing.

Quote of the month: (see Quotable quotes page - renewed June 2015)
Remember, those who follow Him afar off can still keep their eyes on Jesus but those who go one step ahead of Him, lose all sight of Him and walk in their own shadows!
That You should love me as You do and be the God Thou art, is darkness to my intellect but sunshine to my soul.
The kingdom of God is not going to advance by our churches becoming filled with men, but by men in our churches becoming filled with God.
God will have no strength used in His battles but the strength which He Himself imparts. Spurgeon
