Although born and raised in Illinois, Ryan has lived most of his life in Missouri. He crossed the border to attend the University of Missouri, where he became a Christian and met his wife, Kelley. After a year of serving in college ministry in Hungary, he earned a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. About a year after the start of The Crossing, Ryan returned to Columbia to join the staff team here.

He and his wife now have three children: Ethan, Ella, and Molly.
