Earlier today through the wonders of Skype I had the chance to catch up with hip-hopper, author, and weirdo, Connie Jakab. Connie is one of the most remarkable missional leaders in Canada and she is constantly on the leading edge of what mission in Canada looks like. Currently, she is wrapped up in a voting-war [...]
The other day my friend Josh and I headed up Whistler to shoot this little update for Snowboarder’s For Christ Whistler. SFC is an international organization working inside of shred culture across the globe. Here in Whistler, the SFC crew is really awesome, and we’re stoked to lead this thing.

So I’m trying out video, I hope you like it!
