For over 5 years now, Ryan has served on our staff in various roles within student ministry, most recently being a Student Ministry Director and High School Pastor. Ryan was also part of Worship Center’s Ministry Leader Team and the Sermon Prep Team. Ryan’s influence on our church is invaluable, and we are truly thankful for all the time he has invested into the lives of our students, volunteers, and church community over the years.

Ryan has known for some time that Student Ministry is not where he sees himself for the long run. Recently Ryan came to the conclusion that now is time for him to move on, before a new school year/ministry season is starting up. Ryan is in the process of exploring other ministry opportunities.

Pastor Don says this about Ryan: “We are so grateful for the five years Ryan has invested into student ministry here at Worship Center. His heart for people, commitment to discipleship and passion for sound doctrine have impacted students as well as the whole church family. We are confident God will continue to use Ryan to make a difference in the kingdom as he steps into the next chapter of ministry.”

Ryan says, “I am thankful to God for giving me the years of opportunity to invest well in the lives of students, families, and staff at Worship Center. Worship Center has had an incredible history of being faithful to serve God’s Kingdom and his people, and it was rewarding to be a small piece of that history of God’s work. It is my hope and prayer that Worship Center can continue to be faithful to that history and God’s people.”

Ryan’s last date on staff will be July 6. Please pray for Ryan and Jenny Zook as they transition into what God is calling them to do next, and please pray for our Student Ministry Team as they navigate this transition.
