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.
Louise Leonard - Outgoing Managing Director
Louise brings many years of camp experience from across Canada to our organization, and would be delighted to talk to you about Stayner Camp. Louise spent many years involved with a number of camps through the Canadian Sunday School Mission (now One Hope Canada), and CCI Canada, and was the Executive Director of Evergreen Christian Ministries for nine years. Louise believes that "Camp ministry has a two pronged effect in that it reaches our guests, kids or adults, with the gospel yet it always builds spiritual growth into the staff who lead and serve. Camp is a generational growth tool. From camper to staff, volunteering to leadership in the local church. Growing disciples means growing leaders." Louise will be continuing to work with us in the near future to train and equip Kyle as he steps into the role of Managing Director.
Kathleen Denbok - Kitchen Coordinator
Kathleen joined our kitchen team in the spring of 2019. Since then there is no turning back! She has taken her background in marketing, retail and, of course baking, to bring a delicious array of meals to our camp guests. Always energetic and smiling, we often see her family join in helping with larger events. Kathleen is the mom of four kids, and attends Clearview Community Church.
Verlie Koch - ECM Bookkeeper
Verlie joined our team as the bookkeeper for ECM in 2005. Since then, she has also taken on other roles, including Camp Registrar for Youth and Family Camps. A gifted musician, she has also had the pleasure of leading worship at both Stayner and Mishewah. Originally from Newfoundland, Verlie moved to Hanover where she met and married Doug. They have 3 adult children, and 5 grandchildren. Because Verlie works from home, she looks forward each year to visiting our camps to rekindle friendships and experience the spiritual refreshment that camp provides.
Gwendelyn Harwood - Stayner Bookkeeper
Gwendelyn lives in Stayner with her husband Rob, who is lead pastor at Stayner EMC. Gwendelyn first came on board as our Heroes on the Move Day Camp Registrar. As time passed it was obvious we needed her skills here, and she now works as our Stayner bookkeeper on a part time basis. Gwendelyn is mom to Madison and Zach, both now grown up and pursuing their lives. With coffee in hand and a ready smile, Gwendelyn is an important part of our Stayner Team.
Tim Loveday - Family Camp Program Director
Tim brings a whole lot of excitement with him as he leads our family camp every summer. His years of experience in youth ministry, his love of music, and his passion for camp all contribute to an amazing program. Tim is a dad to four amazing kids, and lead pastor at Cedar Creek Community Church.
