After many failures and many ups and downs, he submitted to God's will and started serving at Calvary Chapel Melbourne in Melbourne, FL. It was there he attended a School of Ministry and Calvary Chapel Bible College. Over the years the Lord has blessed him with 4 beautiful children and 1 amazing granddaughter. In May of 2017, Pastor Ryan was sent out to plant a church in Colorado. After 3 1/2 years of planting Calvary Impact Church, he handed it over to leadership, sensing God calling him back to Florida to plant Abide Calvary in Sebastian Florida, launching August 1, 2021.
