Ryan joined Lakeview Covenant's staff in 2018, coming from over a decade of worship ministry. He received his undergraduate degree from North Park University in Biblical and Theological Studies. Ryan is passionate about most anything that ends in “ing” ... hiking, biking, singing, playing, etc. As Pastor of Worship and Arts, Ryan is so grateful for the team of committed people who have stepped up to make our worship gatherings happen and expresses a special thank you to all those who give countless hours of time and energy to be a part of serving with our Worship Ministry. One of the best parts of Ryan’s job is seeing people explore and develop their God given gifts to be used for the building up of Christ’s body. Ryan believes that many of the challenges we faced during the pandemic have stretched us to move forward with more resolve as we share God’s love with our hurting world. Ryan’s prayer is that Lakeview will embrace God’s best as we move forward in mission to impact our community and world. Ryan is a Minnesota native from Buffalo. He is married to Laura and they have two daughters, a son, and a dog named Reggie.
