Johnny has served (and continues to serve) as a Worship Pastor for 18 years at Northview Community Church since 2000. Previous to that, he spent 12 years doing music ministry and youth outreach, touring throughout the UK and Europe, and Africa, recording several solo CDs and worship albums. He has worked as a producer and as a session player and singer for many albums, and in 2005, one of his compositions was nominated as a finalist for a Covenant Award as Canadian P&W song of the year (God Is Our Refuge). He has been involved in numerous conferences internationally, both as a worship leader and seminar speaker, including Worship Together, Apologetics Canada, and Break Forth in Canada.

Johnny’s personal interests include running, travel, watching sports, history, ethnic cuisine, family time, and getting whatever chances he can to keep up his conversational French and German!
