Time Has Come
Margaret has been singing for as long as she can remember. As the youngest of six siblings growing up in Scotland and then Ireland she was often pulled from behind the couch to sing with the others at their various family gatherings. As reluctant as she may have seemed at the time it became obvious as she grew into a young woman that her ability to sing was not something that should be hidden. After immigrating to Canada in 1983 from Northern Ireland, it wasn't very long until she surrendered her life to Jesus and so began the adventure of faith that she has given her life to. Her singing gift has progressively moved to the forefront in the ministry to which she has been called. As a worship leader; Margaret's passion is to draw others into the presence of God and she does that in such a gentle and inviting way that people from every background are touched and impacted as they experience God's peace and presence in way's that they may not have experienced before. Margaret also loves to encourage new and upcoming singers and musicians to become the very best they can be. Through teaching workshops, seminars and by making room for new artists to activate their gift she has been instrumental in helping many take steps of faith towards their purpose. Margaret has been called upon to lead worship at various conferences and events, some have been small intimate gatherings and others have been large city events like the Global Day of Prayer which packed more than 12,000 people into the Olympic Saddledome in downtown Calgary. She has had the privilege of working with other gifted worship leaders like Robin Mark, Brian Doerksen, Kent Henry, and Steve Fry. Margaret's abilities have developed in other directions as well; she has become a much sought after teacher and mentor in various capacities of the life journey. She has had many opportunities to speak and teach at various gatherings in Canada, U.S.A. and Ireland. Margaret lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband Richard. Together they pastor Harvest Christian Fellowsip Church, a vibrant, growing gathering of all ages.
