Wayne Varco and Sandy were both born and raised in California. They met in the small gold rush town of Sonora, CA, fell in love and were married in 1975. His career led him from construction to computer programming to project management and finally to executive positions in the health insurance industry. Health issues forced him to retired in 2003 and they lived life together in the Sacramento area until 2007 when they chose to follow their daughter to Texas and settled in Boerne.
Having been baptized in 1960, Wayne always believed in Jesus. In 1995 Wayne’s dad invited him to a Promise Keepers event in Oakland, Ca. It was during that event that he truly met Jesus and reprioritized his life. His passion for leading men from church affiliation to becoming activated brothers in God’s Kingdom work was ignited. He and Sandy attended a number of churches searching for an organization with any priority set on discipleship and the development of Christian men to lead as God had created them. God also gave Wayne a passion to use his administrative skills for supporting missionaries. During discussions with Bill Loveless, Wayne experienced the freedom of serving Jesus as he was shown that his efforts and planning were misaligned with God’s purpose. Wayne’s life immediately shifted from planning things for God to do – to submission to His plan for Wayne’s life. Wayne and Sandy joined the Faith Bible Church family in 2015 and are thrilled to experience and live life knowing their true identity in Jesus Christ.
Wayne is active in the leadership of Men’s Ministry at Faith Bible Church, supporting church leadership, Connections Ministries, Christian Men of Boerne, Hill Country Daily Bread’s Stand By Me mentoring program, feeding the homeless through Taking It To The Streets, and a Life Group teacher. Wayne is often asked about his favorite bible verse. His response is “it’s the one I’m learning today.” But if pressed he will tell you it is Galatians 5:1 “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”
