He and Alicia moved to Vernon from southern Ontario in January, 2019. They have three children and a dog named Dixie. Daryl grew up on a farm and then studied business in London, Ontario.

Worship, Youth and Church Growth Pastor
Ken serves our church as worship, youth and church growth pastor. Ken, Amanda and family moved to Vernon in August of 2017. They have five children with three of them living at home. Ken came to know Jesus through a foster family when he was 16. Amanda grew up in the CRC church. Together they have experienced many expressions of the Christian faith outside of the CRC which has deepened their appreciation for both our denomination and the church in general. Ken, Amanda and family have a strong calling to help make the ‘good news’ as accessible to as many people as possible. The family enjoys volleyball, movies and games of any kind.
