About Ryan

Pastor Ryan has a passion for shepherding and teaching God’s people through clearly articulating The Gospel from the pulpit each Sunday. As our Lead Pastor, Ryan brings vision and direction to West Cabarrus as he leads the church to glorify God by making more and better disciples from neighborhoods to nations.

Serving since March 2019


Ryan is from the Charlotte area but has lived much of his life in Raleigh. He came to faith reading the Bible and when he got to the book of Revelation God allowed him to understand his future with Christ and what his future without Christ would look like. It was with hope and joy that he confessed and believed in the God of salvation.

It wasn’t long after Ryan came to place his faith in Christ that he felt the call to pursue full-time ministry. He completed his undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies and received his Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been blessed with opportunities to serve the Lord with different mission teams in Africa, South America, Central America, and Europe.

Ryan met his wife, Lori, in college at UNC Charlotte and in 2007 they got married. They now have the joy of raising 3 children to know and love Jesus Christ.

A fun fact about Ryan is that he pulls for the best team in baseball…The New York Yankees… and has been to both the new and old Yankee Stadium!
