Ryan Patty


My Ministry:

I have the privilege to shepherd over our children's (nursery through 6th grade) ministries. I work with a gifted team of volunteers who love seeing children grow in both their love for and faith in Jesus Christ! Our goal is to partner with parents to faithfully raise the next generation of Christ followers.

About Me:

What's your favorite pastime?

I have a few favorite pastimes. 1) Laura and I love hiking, camping, and just being outdoors. We hope to instill a love for these things into our kids. 2) I am an avid reader. Not only of theology but also a lot of fiction. Reading helps me to decompress from the day’s events. 3) I love to travel and see new places. My goal is to one day explore the scenery and landscapes of Norway.

What's something we should know about your personality?

Two things: 1) I am a jokester (for better or worse). If it’s not a prank on another staff member, it’s a light-hearted remark to a church member. I enjoy laughing with others! 2) I am a planner! I need a plan and for things to be organized to be able to work effectively.

What's something surprising others should know?

I successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in July of 2017.
