Carey is the lead and founding pastor of Connexus Community Church and has been serving in ministry since 1995. He is the primary communicator on Sunday mornings, and one of his key passions is to see people’s lives changed as they encounter Christ. He and his wife, Toni, live north of Barrie with their two sons. You’ll hear Carey say that his family outshines him in skiing, mountain biking, hiking, water skiing and more, but he does everything he can to keep up with them! Carey might also be one of the funniest people we know.
