Ryan and I have served in ministry together for over ten years in a variety of capacities. Ryan is a proven leader who has a heart to grow God’s kingdom on a national and international level. He does this with intentionality and wisdom as he focuses on empowering local leaders to have a long-lasting, sustainable ministry in their communities. I have been impressed by how innovative Ryan is and how he finds creative ways to make the work that ministries and churches are doing to be as impactful as possible. I experienced this firsthand when Ryan taught leadership principles to the leaders at Every Generation Ministries and shared strategies with us to help us maximize our ministry impact.  One of the reasons that Ryan is so effective is because of his character. He not only brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, but he is trustworthy, loyal, passionate, and extremely dedicated. I am confident that anyone who has the privilege to work with Ryan will experience his Christ-centered focus, creative strategies, and experienced-based leadership.
