Executive Director: Maynard Wiersma, CFP®
Maynard was appointed as the new CSS Executive Director on February 1st 2012. Previously he served CSS clients and partners as South Western Ontario Representative, a position he filled since October 2007. Maynard worked in the financial industry since 1993, including 6 years with AIC Ltd as a Client Services Representative. While there he was asked to be one of the founding members of the new AIC Client Services Tax and Estate planning team and later served in that capacity as the team supervisor. He felt that his move to CSS in October 2007 was a natural progression to better utilize the gifts God gave him for service in His kingdom.
Maynard achieved his CFP designation in 2003 and continues to enhance his tax and estate planning expertise with relevant industry courses.
Maynard is a member of the Maranatha CRC in Cambridge, where he lives with his wife and eleven year old son. He is currently serving on his Church's stewardship committee, as well as being the webmaster of the church's website. > Email Maynard

>Ontario: Marinus Koole
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as a Stewardship Consultant with Christian Stewardship Services. I anticipate many years of helping people to learn about and fulfill their Godly Stewardship goals.
During the 25 years of working on the family farm I was involved in various capacities at the local CRC churches, Beacon Christian School and local community organizations. From 2003 -2007 my wife organized, and I provided the muscle for our own pickup and delivery service of donated furniture for new refugees through which we helped over 200 local families. For the last 10 years I have participated in annual construction mission trips, mostly to Guatemala. It was through those trips that I learned a deeper sense of “God using each one of us in ways we did not imagine, in spite of our human limitations, and beyond our expectation”.
During training for my CFP while working with Investors Group the desire was strengthened in me to find an opportunity where I could more actively share my understanding that: “God has created us to be stewards of all resources, including our health, time and materials”. Working with CSS will allow me to further work parts of that out with like minded clients.
Outside of my work, I love to sing in choral groups, hike the Bruce Trail, cycle, golf and spend time outdoors with my wife, family and friends.
