Harvest Des Moines, IA
Ryan grew up in a Christian home and came to the Lord at the age of 5. As a junior high student, he grasped that seeking the Lord and His plan looks very different than the world’s plan. Ryan rededicated his life to Jesus and continued to grow in his love and passion for His plan and His Word through high school.
After a two-month missionary trip to Europe at the age of 16, Ryan knew he wanted to go to college to pursue his desire to be in ministry. He obtained his B. A. in Christian Ministries with a minor in Biblical Literature from Indiana Wesleyan University, and his M. Div. from Columbia International University (Seminary).
With nine years in full-time ministry and experience planting a church, Ryan was driven and led by the Spirit to become equipped to plant Harvest Des Moines.
