I'm new

Rev. Sean Love


Rev. Sean serves as Rector at St. John's Richmond Church in Richmond, B.C. He is a Vancouverite by birth and trained in geography and high school education. He lived in New Mexico for nine years where he was a youth minister and High School teacher. Sean returned to Vancouver in 2002 and completed his MDiv at Regent College, as well as an internship with Artizo. He is married to Penny and has three sons, Graham, Thomas, and Dylan.

Sean has a few hobbies, none of which are coffee. He likes trains, planes, and automobiles (and, ok, ships), is an avid sailor, has driven tour buses, enjoys exploring God's creation, and appreciates good urban design.

Guy Bellerby


Guy is married to Peggy, and they have 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and one dog.
He loves to teach from the Bible, the ministry of evangelism, and the Anglican way of Christian faith. Guy has served in churches in Vancouver, North Delta, Saskatchewan, and Vancouver Island. He trained at both VST and Regent College, but credits his 5 years with Inter-Varsity as his most formative ministry training - he and Sean were together as leaders at Pioneer Pacific Camp.
Guy plays acoustic guitar, enjoys watching film, baroque music, books, and swimming laps at lunchtime.
