He pursued this call while completing studies at Wheaton College & Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. His mission is to glorify Christ, equip the Church and reach the lost.

Ryan is married to Rebecca. They are the parents of 4 boys: Gabe, Eben, Caleb and their newest addition, Cole.  

Living Hope elects an elder board to assist in the leadership of the church.
