Although Dan’s education is from Canada and his practical experience has been mostly in the U.S., Dan’s heart has always been to serve internationally. The start of this journey began in 2007 during Dan’s first EMI project to the Middle East where he witnessed God’s redemptive work - and His caring for the poorest of the poor. More than a decade later, Dan is going back to Canada to join EMI staff as a Project Leader and Architect.

Ministry Experience

Through leading Bible studies at a homeless ministry and his involvement in local churches in the Philadelphia area, Dan has witnessed real life examples of God’s care for the poor and marginalized – getting glimpses of how we are in this world but not of it.


Dan and Li-Ann moved to Philadelphia for Li-Ann’s graduate school in Art Therapy. The plan was to stay  there for 2 years. 23 years later, they have now seen their two daughters off to college. Ava (who is studying  at the University of Pittsburgh) and Juliana (at McMaster University). Li-Ann has worked in community mental health for over 12  years and will seek to make use of her skills when they return to Canada.
