Stayner Be In Christ Church Staff
Matthew was born in Kitchener and raised in the KW area and North of Toronto; His wife Gariane was born and raised in Northern PA. They both accepted Christ at a young age. At different times, both Matthew and Gariane felt God calling them into full-time ministry.
In 2016 they join the team at Stayner BIC Church.
This journey took them to Emmanuel Bible College where they met. They were married August 3, 2002. On April 5, 2006, God blessed them with triplets – Carissa, Kayley, and Nathaniel. Then in December of 2014, they adopted a little boy named Jesse.
His family enjoys outdoor activities including walking, camping, reading and watching movies.
On his day off many times, Matthew can be found fishing.
Pastor Matthew’s heart is to see people discover Christ, and grow in their faith.
Wes Vardy, Director of Worship and Youth
Wes was born in Cornwall ON. Growing up as a pastor’s child in a family of 6, Wes was involved in the growing church of Dundalk Wesleyan. Wes’s education pursuits led him to Kingswood University, where he studied Pastor Ministry and Global Impact and Mission Work. This led him to Houghton College, where he became a licensed minister in the Wesleyan Church of Canada.
Upon graduation, he then took the call to pastor in Chicago, where he served as the Worship and Youth Pastor. He then took the call to be the Youth Pastor at his home church of Dundalk Wesleyan, where he served faithfully.
He then met his now wife Andrea during this time (pictured above), and they have been happily married for 2 years now.
He looks forward to seeing how God is going to move in the years to come.
