Our Team

Kyle Moore

Managing Director

Originally from California, Kyle moved to Cambridge, Ontario in 1995 to work on staff with Youth With A Mission.  There, he met a godly and beautiful woman, and he and Ang were married in 1997.    Over the years, Kyle has been involved with leading home groups, Alpha, short-term mission trips, and of course, camp ministry.  The Moores came to Stayner and Mishewah in 2001 to run the children’s ministry for family camp.  In 2008 they realized that their hearts were drawn to Stayner Camp where they programmed activities specifically for the family camp ministry.  Kyle and Ang worked with Louise Leonard for several years to develop and introduce Stayner’s LIT program, directing this incredible and fun new ministry up to the beginning of 2016.  In 2016 Ang lost her battle with cancer, and Kyle took a step back from ministry.  Kyle and his kids continued to spend time at their trailer during the summer, and Stayner became a very special place of ministry and healing for the family.    Kyle is excited about journeying together to continue making Stayner Camp a place where people can find refuge, peace, healing, friendship, spiritual growth, a place to serve, and a whole lot of fun that comes from the moving of the Holy Spirit.
