About Ryan

Ryan was born and raised in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona. Growing up in a Christian home his whole life, it wasn’t until his mid-twenties that he saw his need for Jesus and turned to Him as Lord and Savior. 

Ryan’s heart and passion is for teaching the Word of God. After reading Ezra 7:10, which talks about how Ezra had a desire to study, practice (live out) and teach the Word of God, Ryan knew that God was calling him to be the same kind of man. 

His first experience of overseas ministry came on a short-term trip to Uganda. Soon after that, God’s love for all peoples and nations struck him with renewed clarity and he has been involved in global missions ever since. Ryan now seeks to use his passion for teaching the Word of God to train, teach and equip other church leaders from around the world, so that they can better reach their people and their nation. He currently spends most of his time serving in East Africa, as well as training in other nations when time allows.

Ryan’s greatest joy is using the Word of God to draw people closer to Jesus.
