Ryan and Jackie, with their five daughters (Taia 16, Tessa 12, Aila 11, Avry 7, & Isly 5) 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, healing, 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 cultivate a church that is safe for the desperate, holds to Scripture while healing the shattered, reveres the Great Tradition while feeding the soul-starved, and equips the saints to reach and serve the heart of the Island. In addition to leading Christ's Church Ryan leads Pilgrimage in the Way, an online journey in the Way of Jesus and Jackie runs a counselling practice serving clients both within Oceanside and across Canada.
