Ryan was once told to be the bigger man and he took it literally! Not just in his size but with his personality as well. Ryan grew up in the church, and student ministry played a huge role in his love for Christ. He feels called to do student ministry to help develop students in the same way he was so that they can grow in their walk with Christ and impact the future.
