NEXT, a children’s ministry conference designed to encourage and equip you (leaders and volunteers) to make a difference in the lives of kids and families. The day is full of lots of practical workshops that will help you make a difference in your kids' ministry immediately.

He consults regularly with pastors, churches, not-for-profit organizations, and post-secondary institutions, in the areas of strategic planning, leadership development, student life, enrolment and growth development, faith and life integration, next-generational ministry, spiritual formation, organizational effectiveness, and personal development.
Sheldon currently serves as the Regional Director for Atlantic Canada with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, and as the Director of Student Services for the University of New Brunswick. He has also served as a pastor, para-church ministry Executive Director, and chief enrolment officer and chief student affairs officer for faith-based and public universities.

Sheldon is a family man whose three children provide a source of rich blessing and humour. He loves working with children, youth, and students is a contagious storyteller and tells poorly executed dad jokes with ease. Students say his Instagram account is on fleek….apparently, that means it’s good.
