Ryan and his wife Rachel are new to Tucson. Originally from the Detroit area, Ryan is thoroughly enjoying the contrast in weather from his home! As he says, "The sun never turns off here!"
Ryan has a Bachelor of Science in Music Ministry with a minor in Biblical Studies. He has 20+ years of worship leading experience and could not imagine doing anything else! Most recently Ryan has found unending joy in training and coaching new and prospective Worship Pastors and team members. He regularly searches for the next person to mentor because, as he puts it, "We are all in interim positions. Who's next?"
Ryan and Rachel love sports, both watching and participating. They are often found in the gym and out enjoying all the great sites Arizona has to offer. They have two dogs, Leo the Cane Corso AKA Black Bear, and Kho’sen the Ibizan Hound AKA Prison Break. Rachel runs Salon Kiro in Tucson and Ryan may or may not be found there pretending to shampoo and blow dry hair on occasion! They and have fallen in love with God's plan for New Life and Tucson.
