Get To Know Ryan.

I am humbled to be able to do youth ministry here at New Life! When the previous youth pastor stepped down, my wife and I were the adult leaders of the High School youth group. I was asked to finish out the year as an interim; and during that time, I felt the call to apply for the full-time position. I started working at New Life in 2005. I love the life teens bring, and I especially enjoy serving with them. As I get older, I’ve gained a love for empowering our adult leaders and seeing God work through them. I am married to Tiffany, who grew up at New Life and got me involved here. We have three boys, Kyler (14), Kale (11), and Lincoln (7), and they are awesome! I enjoy a good movie, a round of disc golf, and sitting back with my wife watching our kids do what they do.
