Wes has been with SouthRidge since 2012, bringing with him a refreshing enthusiasm connecting people into community (And learning names!). He is a Canucks fan and enjoys running, drinking coffee and gardening… maybe not all at the same time. He and his wife Christy have 4 absurdly adorable children. If Wes could be any fictional character, he’d be Aragorn from Lord of the Rings.
