For those unable to receive Holy Communion: Dear Jesus, I believe that thou art truly present in the Holy Sacrament. I love thee above all things, and I desire to possess thee within my soul. And since I cannot now receive thee sacramentally, I beseech thee to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself to thee, together with all thy faithful people gathered around every altar of thy Church, and I embrace thee with all the affections of my soul. Never permit me to be separated from thee. Amen.
Our preaching and teaching is firmly grounded in the holy Bible as God's Word.
Our worship is liturgical and sacramental. We believe God is present to us in a special way through fellowship (i.e., the gathering of the Christian community for worship), the proclamation of his holy Word, the celebration and administration of his holy Sacraments (e.g., holy Baptism and holy Eucharist) and through our ministry to others in the Name of Jesus.
We attempt to offer the very best of the evangelical, charismatic and catholic streams merging them into a flowing river as experienced in the ancient Church.
We believe that we are called to love and worship God with all of heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Most of all, we are called to make Jesus Christ known in the hearts and lives of our people and all whom we come into contact with and minister to. Jesus Christ is Life and Salvation for all who know him and are known by him. Come to know Jesus through a wonderful and loving church community, his life-giving Word and Gospel, his holy Sacraments and through our several ministries.
Dan was the vicar of St John’s Vancouver Anglican church, serving with David Short who is rector of that parish. He graduated from Wycliffe College Toronto in 1990 (MDiv) and was ordained to the priesthood in 1991. After a two-year curacy on the Sunshine Coast of BC (a name he often found to be somewhat misleading), he was appointed the first rector of St. Andrew’s Pender Harbour, BC where he ministered for a very happy six years. In 1998 he left St. Andrew’s to join the staff of St. John’s where he feels deeply blessed to have served until the present day. Discipleship, catechism, evangelism, cross-cultural mission, and preaching are some of the areas of his ministry that Dan has been particularly blessed by over his years there. He is also archdeacon for Vancouver BC and surrounding area, is a member of the ANiC finance committee, a past member of ANiC Council and chaired the ANiC Harvest Task Force in 2019. He and his wife Cathryn met at St. John’s and married in 2001. They have two boys Alexander age 19 and Nicholas age 16. Dan loves spending time with his family, especially doing outdoor activities. He also enjoys snowboarding the beautiful BC mountains, walks with his dog Windsor, reading good books, has recently acquired a love of sailing, and supports the incomparable Minnesota Vikings in their quest for that Super Bowl win that has eluded them for so long
