Ryan began serving as a pastoral resident in 2022 continuing his desire to keep Jesus at the center of everything he does. He lovingly leads his family, and after the passing of his wife to cancer in 2017, his role of raising three young boys on his own became a new challenge until his recent marriage to his new wife, Kristin. Much of his adult life was spent at Offutt AFB working on aircraft for the Air Force—both on Active Duty and as a contractor. A call to ministry would lead him into training where he would graduate with a Bachelor of Arts from Grace University in 2012. Since 2014, he has been living in Glenwood, IA and doing full-time ministry in that area. Currently he runs a ministry out of his home called “One in Heart Ministries” where multiple weekly small group studies and a larger monthly worship gathering has emerged. Another place of ministry is leading the GriefShare group held at LifeSpring Church. He is excited about the opportunity of serving as a Pastoral Resident to learn more about leading a highly functioning church. In his off time he loves hanging out with his family, playing sports, and being outdoors—especially hiking or cycling.
