Tell us about your time @ Charis, Tom
I have been the Food Service Director since 2013! I am in charge of all of the food service including ordering, menus, hiring staff and quality and cost control. I chose camp ministry because there is nothing better than an environment that you can freely express your worship to God in and have a vocation at the same time!
My favorite moments are when I get a heartfelt appreciation from people. It increases my capacity for more blessing to pass through me. I truly want to do all my work to God's glory.
What does life @Home look like?
Anita and I just celebrated our 32 wedding anniversary!!! We have 2 kids; Dyanna is married and living in the USA and Matthew recently graduated and lives with us here.
I enjoy watching sports where we get to know players and their accomplishments. Some favorite teams are NFL Seahawks, NHL Oilers, WHL Seatle Thunderbirds, MLB Seatle Mariners and CFL Edmonton Eskimos. I like to collect hockey jerseys both new and game worn (from all levels) with my son. I love networking and have learned to really appreciate everyone I come in contact with.
