2018 was my 30th anniversary at FCC. It was the spring of 1988 when I began attending services and within three years I was given the privilege of serving on staff as the associate to Pastor Ernie Kratofil, in April 1991. As a staff pastor I also began my service at Saanich Peninsula Hospital as a volunteer chaplain and have continued to this day. Upon retirement in 2007 I continued in various ministry activities such as Bible studies, prayer times, pulpit supply and funerals, etc. Another of the "hats" I wear at Friendship is property manager, and you can often find me mowing, painting and doing general maintenance here at Friendship most week days.
