Pastor Ryan is an associate pastor of Christ Lutheran. Ryan earned a bachelor's degree from the Ohio State University and a Master of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. If you’ve read this far, he wants you know that none of that matters. His passion is building the Church in a way that would accept and be accepted by Jesus. That means more than coming to church; it means being the love of Christ, who loves all. All means all. Join in the mission.
