RYAN & JACKIE MATCHETT
Vicar of Christ's Church

 

Ryan and Jackie, with their five daughters (Taia 15, Tessa 11, Aila 9, Avry 5, & Isly 3) have devoted their lives to building their spiritual, family, church, and community life on Jesus the Cornerstone.  It was in the midst of the real life beauties and difficulties of marriage, parenting, mental health, addiction, death, friendship, and calling that Ryan and Jackie experienced the saving power and faithfulness of Jesus. It is from this place of personal witness that Ryan and Jackie lead, preach, train, counsel, and pastor. Their heart is to serve Christ's Church Oceanside as a people that will glorify Jesus and are safe for the desperate, hold to Scripture while healing the shattered, revere the Great Tradition while feeding the soul-starved, and equip the saints to reach and serve the heart of the Island. In addition to raising their family and leading Christ's Church, Jackie is finishing her degree in counseling and Ryan is hard at work on furthering his theological studies and completing several upcoming writing projects.
