Ryan was raised in Grand Junction, CO. He received his BA in Speech Communications from Colorado State University where he met his wife, Jen. He earned a Master of Divinity from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary and is in the process of completing his doctorate from Fuller Seminary. Ryan and Jen have been married for nine years. They have a two-year-old daughter, Taylor.
Before coming to Springhill, Ryan served as the Associate Pastor of Family Ministries at Grand Lakes Presbyterian Church in Katy, TX. His hope for Family Ministries is to build an inter-generational community. He believes that when Children and Youth Ministries integrate with the larger family in Christ, we are better together. His goal for Family Ministry is a 5:1 discipleship ratio, with five adults pouring their faith into each child’s life in one capacity or another.
