The Reverend John Stephens
Rector of Saint John's Shaughnessy

When I was very young, I emigrated to Vancouver and was quickly immersed in community, church, school, sport and adventure.  I developed a fascination for this planet and studied zoology, aiming toward a career in health care.  God had different plans, however, and I discerned a calling which has led me down numerous paths.  I continue to have wonder for this world and places of splendour.  My wife, Ruth, and I have two adult children and Hastings (Labradoodle). The work of ministry continues to keep me humble and grateful while the ability to create with my hands keeps me grounded.
