Rev Ross & Jeannie White

Tour Host

Jeannie and Ross White, will be your Greece and Steps of St. Paul Tour Hosts. Retirement from our congregation in Victoria, B.C. is fast approaching! Ross has served as a United Church of Canada minster for 35 years, working part of that time in partnership with Jeannie at Highlands Church in North Vancouver. Jeannie has just retired from her last job serving the city’s poor and homeless. She loves to weave, spin, or knit, and also dragon boats with breast cancer survivors. Ross is a swimmer and actively involved in the Healing Arts. Ross and Jeannie enjoy camping and hiking and just about anything outdoors. They have three adult daughters who they love getting together with, especially when it includes a hike or a swim.

Travelling, and especially hosting trips, gives us chances for learning more about our amazing world. Our tour friends from past trips to Israel/Jordan and Scotland regale us often with memorable vignettes of humour, and good times such as group circle dances or a zany recitation of Lewis Carroll poetry. Rostad has proven to be an excellent way for us to travel. They listen, remember and integrate what each person tells them about the spirit within us all that longs for adventure... And creature comforts.
