About Pastor Ryan
Ryan and his wife, Denise were both born and raised in Indiana. They have been happily married since March 25th, 2008. They have two sons: Cory (22) and Brayden (20). Cory moved back to Indiana after serving in the U. S. Army and is engaged to be married to his fiance, Amber. Brayden is currently serving in the U.S. Army on the island of Oahu, Hawaii as an Intelligence Analyst. Pastor Ryan was honored to marry Brayden and his wife, Destany shortly before moving to Grangeville.
Denise is an amazing nurse (RN) and has begun working at Syringa Hospital, right here in Grangeville. She is a wonderful patient advocate. Nursing is one of her many gifts and it allows God to use her in a setting where she has opportunity to love like Jesus and care for her neighbors.
Pastor Ryan believes that God has led him and Denise from Indiana to Grangeville and he expects to see amazing, world-changing results. This move has been a leap of faith for both of them but God is blessing them abundantly since the move.
Ryan wants to show the world that God is alive and working in and through Grangeville UMC and the community itself. He is working closely with the congregation, other community churches, the population of Grangeville, as well as many other United Methodist Churches within the Inland District to do as Jesus instructed as told by the gospel of Matthew, Chapter 28 vv. 19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Pastor Ryan’s shepherding and musical talents are a combination of gifts that speak to all ages. The Holy Spirit uses these and his other gifts to communicate God’s love to people in a way that is inviting, inspirational, and heart-warming.
