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 the marginalized. This journey made big steps in 2011 during one of Dan’s first EMI projects to Haiti where he witnessed God’s redemptive work - and His caring for the poor. 8 years later, Dan is back in Canada, joining the EMI staff as a Project Leader, Project Development Manager, coordinating the Fellowship program and providing Architectural support for our other EMI offices overseas.

Working with 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.
Shortly after being married, 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. Well, after 23 years, they have now seen their two daughters off to University. Ava (who is a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh) and Juliana (at McMaster University). Li-Ann has worked in community mental health for the past 12 years and currently provides mentorship and serves as the Intern Coordinator for EMI Canada.
