Pastor Ryan is the lead pastor of Mars Hill Everett. He is from Australia and after becoming a Christian at age 22, felt called immediately to get prepared for ministry. He was attending a Bible college when God clearly opened the door to move and undertake an internship at Mars Hill West Seattle. After a year in the internship, he transitioned to being a lead pastor. He is a proud supporter of the Adelaide Crows and Norwood Redlegs, Australian Rules Football teams. He also likes hanging out with his wife, watching movies, and eating schnitzel.
