Growing up in a full-time ministry family, Ryan has ministered in various church settings since the age of 4. Today, his heart is to see united and mobilized movements of worship, prayer, and fasting raised up in the nations of the earth that will result in permanent societal transformation: sustained revival, social justice, and massive end time harvest.
After completing his Bachelor’s degree in music performance, Ryan joined the Eagles’ Wings team and has been a staff member since 2002. He has served nationally and internationally as a worship leader, musician, trainer, and speaker. He has a passion and gift to lead corporate times of worship intertwining prophetic song, modern choruses, and foundational hymns of the church, bridging generations and cultures.
As a speaker and teacher, Ryan brings a direct, cutting edge word to both youth and adult audiences challenging them to live out Biblical lifestyles as defined in the Word of God, not by current culture. He also regularly teaches on topics including worship, intercession, the 24/7 house of prayer movement, the Tabernacle of David, regional unity, generational reconciliation, and Israel.
As a musician, he has ministered as the chief drummer at the International Feast of Tabernacles celebration in Jerusalem for the past 7 years and has played drums for recent Integrity Music albums.
Ryan has led worship for the past 2 years at the annual International Prayer Council Summit at the United Nations (http://www.ipcprayer.org) which brings together hundreds of prayer movement leaders from around the globe. He has represented the Eagles’ Wings team across the USA leading worship and speaking at regional nights of worship, music workshops, Sunday morning services, and youth conferences. He maintains a heart for the next generation through youth ministry and leadership training with the Eagles’ Wings Remnant Youth Initiative and High school summer discipleship program.
Ryan currently brings leadership to the Metro New York House of prayer which is mobilizing and uniting the prayer movement in the greater New York City region (www.mnyhop.org), and has been instrumental in organizing regional gatherings and house of prayer expressions in other cities and regions. He regularly travels to and ministers in Israel with the Eagles’ Wings team.
