Our Home Team
President, Bowser BC
Peter’s life is full and he is grateful for the many aspects that fill it, even as each one overflows. There’s his family, his garden, the Vancouver Island beach rental, visiting friends—including many reSource friends—and his half-time role as reSource President. Peter’s passion for his work at reSource has only grown since he took on leadership. Prior to this he worked for years in the flower trade and served reSource in Board and Tresasurer capacities. While he has always loved his work in life, being part of the reSource team is a special blessing. It is a joy for him to participate in the strategic and long-term investment of Christian leaders in the majority world and he loves connecting with reSource’s like-minded donors, staff, and board. Peter has a passion for plants and gardening, he loves fishing and, with his wife Diana enjoys hosting guests in their home or beach house by the ocean. Peter and Diana have five children and twelve grandchildren. They worship at Living Hope Church in Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. To God be the glory!

Hans was born in Poland (Feb/1943) to German parents. His mother took Hans and his three siblings and fled from the Russian troops in the winter of 1945 (along with his aunt and her two children – two women and six kids under six). In 1949 they immigrated to Canada and settled in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, where Hans attended school. Hans moved to Vancouver in 1965, where he has worked as a commercial realtor for the past 40 years. He has six children and six grandchildren and loves to garden, cook and walk his dog Laddie. Hans and his wife Ute are active members of the Dunbar Lutheran Church in Vancouver, where Hans has served as chair of council.

Board of Directors, Chair
David serves as Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages at the Biblical Seminary of Colombia. He and his wife Karen work from dual ministry bases, spending half of each year near Hartford, Connecticut, USA and the other half in Colombia’s beguiling second city of Medellín. David and Karen have six adult children and ten grandchildren. David was born and raised in a small Pennsylvania German town amid rolling farmland between Appalachian ridges and still feels rooted in that same modestly magnificent valley. Yet the Lord’s calling on his life has taken him far from there in support of Majority-World theological education and those who shape it and are formed by it. He served for a dozen years as the president of Overseas Council (USA) and so is no stranger to the Overseas Council Network, of which reSource Leadership International is a member. David serves as a Global Consultant for reSource.
