Position & Ministry Description: Ryan's duties include preaching and teaching, as well as pastoral oversight of our small groups and our children's discipleship ministry.
Ryan's Vision: God has given Ryan a vision to invest his life in what will last. On the other side of eternity, Ryan wants to know he spent the time on this side doing what was most worthwhile. In Ryan's life, people who invested in him for God's name and God's glory have changed his view of God and set him on a path toward pursuing God’s glory and displaying that to those around him. If Ryan could do the same for others in his life, then he will certainly find his time well spent.
Family Information: Ryan and his wife Justine have been married since 1999. They have three children: Nicole, Nathan, and Lauren.
