Lloyd (as he prefers to be called) was ordained by the United Church of Canada in 1991 and has served communities in Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Most recently Lloyd served as Chaplain within the Correctional Service of Canada and then as Operations Officer with Kairos Pneuma Chaplaincy Inc., a company that he and four colleagues formed in 2013. When their contract with the Correctional Service of Canada ended Lloyd returned to his first calling and shared ministry with the Parrsborough Shore Pastoral Charge before being called to the Sackville Pastoral Charge in May of 2017.
In all of his endeavours, Lloyd brings a deep passion for asking questions and creating community. He serves the larger Church as a Conflict Resolution Facilitator and Educational Supervisor and has the capacity to assist communities in identifying shared interests and values and discerning actionable plans. With his training in Human Resources Management, Lloyd supported the General Council of the United Church through his participation in the Ministry Employment Policy Services Committee.
Lloyd brings to his position as minister, his love for creative communication and meeting people along the way - something he especially enjoyed while riding his motorcycle – discovering in each instance ‘how we are more alike than different’!
The motorcycle and travel to distant places are now but fond memories. Stories of some of his trips around North America, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, New Zealand and Australia can be found at his now archived blog, The Sabbath Road.
Lloyd shares the journey of life with his wife Jennifer and their six awesome kids, two cats and a Service Dog, Rasta, as well as a large community of friends and colleagues. Lloyd spends his sabbath time with family and friends enjoying a little patch of paradise on the shores of the Northumberland Strait.
