Pastor Ryan was 19 years old when he heard from God to go to bible college, develop as a leader, and plant a church called Church on a Mission in a metropolitan area. In college, Ryan met the love of his life Leah who was a worship leader at the church they both attended. In July of 2013, Ryan and Leah were married and began their life in ministry together. They began serving as Associate Pastors at The Freedom Church in May of 2014. By January 2015, God had opened the door for them to start a brand new church in New Orleans, Louisiana. With full support from their Senior Pastors, family, and friends, they began the journey of building the foundation of Church on a Mission.
