Les is an Ontario boy, raised in a Pastor's family where God was central to everything but it wasn't until his time at Ontario Bible College (now Tyndale) that the Lord gave him a desire for ministry, first in camp ministry and then the pastorate. After being blessed by the Lord with Laurie, his wife of now 30 years, Les took on the role of Pastor at Madoc Baptist Church. From there, he led congregations in Ottawa, New york, Lindsay and Central Pennsylvania before coming recently to Faith Baptist-Oakville. Other ministries have seen Les as Chaplain of the City of Kawartha Lakes Police, Camp Director, Camp Chaplain, as well as Conference Speaker and on Mission trips to Haiti, Japan, Malawi and South Africa. Les and Laurie have been gifted by God with four wonderful children: Mike, Melissa and Matthew who are grown and living in Hamilton and Toronto and Titus who is 8 years old. Les loves to watch and play sports, spend time in the outdoors, read and converse over coffee. Reflecting on all that God has done in his life, Les marvels at how truly gracious He is. Les loves to preach the Word and help others discover the wonders of God within it. His passion is for the gospel of Jesus Christ to be spread to all nations for the glory of the Lord.
