Building seems to have always been at the heart of what motivates Bruce. Using skills obtained a home builder, Bruce was fortunate to lead the development and construction of children’s camps across Canada with Crossroads Christian Communications. In later years I took the same principles used to build buildings and develop properties and applied that to building and developing organizations with Crossroads and Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship as the National Director of Camping Ministry. Those same desires to build, lead Bruce to pastoring for 10 years. During that time Bruce lead a small congregation that eventually become known as YesChurch, through significant growth and a shift to a new paradigm of outreach and ministry. All of these experiences have a common thread running through them. That thread is the building up and developing of people to reach their potential in all areas of life.
Through all these roles and responsibilities Bruce’s wife, Wanda has been right there providing her own unique gifts and abilities. While at the same time pursuing her own path in music and worship leading nationally and internationally.
The most important role and privilege that Bruce and Wanda have is to be the parents of five remarkable children, all of whom are married to wonderful spouses and to date, there are 16 grandchildren. At this stage in their lives Bruce and Wanda are increasingly aware of the power of being intentional about the legacy they will leave.
It’s that revelation of the importance of legacy and the eternal perspective that has energized the transition to be an executive and life coach and why Bruce is so motivated to be a Convene Chair. The opportunity to serve significant leaders as they pursue God’s purpose for their lives, families and businesses is such a privilege. In addition, Bruce is motivated to serve marketplace leaders because of the strategic importance of marketplace leaders have in the Great Commission.
