Ross is the author of Q830:GENESIS, a touring speaker, masterful storyteller, and founder of Q830 MEDIA INC. An accredited pastor, partner with ShareWord Global, and graduate of Briercrest College & Seminary, Ross is passionate about the Bible and helping people encounter it in engaging ways. He believes the Bible is a literary masterpiece that most people neglect due to presumptions, and frustrations. He wants to help people experience it as one seamless story, like never before, showcasing a book you'd be crazy not to read.
Ross speaks at conferences, camps, churches, youth gatherings, and tours his event, Seven Mile Story. He has been referred to as a unique guide to the Bible, "like few others of our time."
When he's not working, Ross enjoys hockey, golf, the lake, working out, his motorbike, and spending time with family & friends.
Ross has often joked that most people who knew him growing up would have laughed if they knew he'd turn out to be an author, speaker, and pastor. All he wanted was to play hockey. Dedicating his life to helping people read the Bible was never on his radar. However, when Ross was in college a friend of his was trying to read the Bible. In a simple attempt to help them, he started sending daily e-mails. All he wanted was to find a way to help his friend connect emotionally with the story, feel emotion, experience drama, and get lost in each moment. He was shocked to hear his friends response--the Bible was "COMING TO LIFE!"
Eventually, Ross' family heard about the e-mails and began reading them. Immediately, they encouraged him to keep writing. As e-mails circulated among family and friends, Ross received more amazing feedback. He quickly noticed a need for people to encounter the Bible in a new way. He realized that people love reading stories and hearing them, but they rarely approach the Bible as one. Meanwhile, he began to see the Bible as a neglected story as passionate and entertaining as any book sold today. He wanted to see people experience the Bible as a best selling novel, no matter what they believe. As a result, e-mails turned into Q830:GENESIS, and his passion for the Bible lead to his ministry as a speaker, and his event, SEVEN MILE STORY.
Since then Ross also began a company called Q830 MEDIA INC, through which he tours his event and continues to write. His passion for the Bible and the story in contains only continues to grow. It is his goal to impact the state of Bible literacy in Canada and around the world. He dreams of seeing dust collecting Bibles off shelves and in the hands of people hungry for what's inside.
