About

Ryan has become a voice of inspiration to people across the country.  He has a daily blog, weekly podcast, is a monthly contributor to ChristianNewsToday.com and also has a weekly radio program called The Pulse.  Ryan has also authored the book Energize Your Life, which features 365 short messages designed to encourage readers each day for a year.  He also helps pastor the young adults at Threesixty, a ministry at Tommy Barnett’s Phoenix First Assembly church.  He speaks regularly at Threesixty as well as at leadership conferences.

It all started for Ryan when he was just 16 and he preached his first sermon at the Youth Alive campus Bible club at Horizon High School.  He realized the passion he had for ministry and directed that passion towards growing that Bible club.  The year before Ryan became the leader of the club, it ran around ten people on weekly basis.  By the time Ryan had graduated, it had become the largest Youth Alive club in Phoenix.

Following his graduation, Ryan was asked to join the Arizona Youth Alive staff.  There he worked with high schools from across the Valley and helped give them tools to reach students.  One of these collaborations was the Blitz assemblies where high school students would put on a major outreach event focused on teenagers.  These rallies were held at several high schools and attracted hundreds of students.  It was during this time that Ryan appeared on a TBN broadcast to talk about how God can change the atmosphere on a public school campus.

Not long after this, the national Youth Alive organization began taking notice and featured some of Ryan’s ideas for growth and outreach in its “Youth Alive Playbook”.  Ryan also was a regular speaker at the annual Arizona Youth Alive conference.  Then, he was promoted to the Director of all the Arizona Youth Alive clubs.

Youth Alive was not the only project Ryan focused on.  He also became a licensed minister of the Assemblies of God and was on the Executive Board for Youth for the Arizona District of the Assemblies of God.  He was able to travel to different churches and high schools around Arizona where he was able to bring a message of hope for his generation.

While attending Arizona State University, Ryan became involved with Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship and was one of the key figures in the student leadership team that helped run and grow the group during its transition between campus pastors.

Even though he was keeping busy with his Youth Alive and Chi Alpha responsibilities, it was during this time that Ryan started a Sunday School class at Tommy Barnett’s Phoenix First Assembly for late teens.  Through the years, this group that began with six people continued to grow.  After Ryan graduated Arizona State with a degree in computer information systems, he devoted more of his time to this group called YAM (young adult ministries).  It ultimately was merged together with EdiPhi, another young adult group at Phoenix First, and Ryan would speak weekly at the ministry’s Sunday service.

When the young adult and youth department at Phoenix First was reorganized into one unit called Threesixty, Ryan became the Associate Pastor for the young adults where he runs the operations of the ministry, plans large events and speaks at services and conferences.
