I grew up in a Christian home in Newcastle, Ontario. In September of 2009 I moved to North Bay in order to attend Nipissing University. At that time I wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but as there weren’t many teaching jobs I decided to take Business Administration along with teaching so that business could be my back up plan. Little did I know that God had a different plan for my life. Throughout my four years in University I fell in love with North Bay and the people here. In July of 2012, the summer between my third and fourth year, I felt God calling me to open a Christian homeless shelter in North Bay. Although I knew this was what God wanted me to do with my life I didn’t actually start working on it until the summer of 2013.Through this shelter we want to demonstrate the life changing power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that this job won’t always be easy, but I am so excited to see what God has planned for the city of North Bay.

No stranger to personal crisis and spiritual brokenness, Chris’s search for meaning, wholeness and healing through a real relationship with God began at age seven.

“I’ve never regretted following God. I have however regretted running away from Him. I’m still baffled by how many times I’ve done that. What’s so amazing is that He has chased me down because of His outrageous love for me. Not just once or twice! He’s never given up on me. I know Jesus Christ as the God of the second … third and fourth chance. He has shown me that His faithfulness and loving kindness are far beyond even the best the world has to offer. I love His love for the broken, marginalized and oppressed. It’s because of this that my heart beats in concert with His for the mission of Hope Awaits Ministries in our community.”
“Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them … and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” Isaiah 58:7p&10p NLT*
