After a career as a business analyst for a publicly traded corporation, R.D. was ordained in the Anglican Diocese of Niagara. He pastors St. George’s Church in Burlington, Ontario, a congregation he has served for over 13 years. St. George’s was the third congregation to leave the Anglican Church of Canada and join the still forming Anglican Network in Canada. He was a founding director of ANiC and was made Canon in 2017. R.D. is convinced that in Anglicanism we have been given a globally and historically trustworthy way of being Christian in the modern world. His ministry is marked by a passion to see the gospel preached, in word and sacrament, in a language understood in our culture. R.D. is married to Monica. They have two teenaged children, Matthew and Kennedy. He enjoys all forms of racing, most things with an internal combustion motor and anything on two wheels.
