Ryan loves making things work! His passion is to make both Sunday service and the presence of church in the community truly exceptional. It is his goal that those who encounter Community Presbyterian Church experience the joy that comes from Christ's presence. He and his family love their new community and look forward to many years of skiing in the winter and playing on the river with their puppy in the summer.

Director of Children's Ministry
I have attended CPC for the past 6 years and love being Director of children’s ministry for the past 2 years. I have been a teacher my whole life, and I am called to serve children at CPC by helping them grow in their faith. My husband Garry and I moved to Central Oregon about 6 years ago from the Seattle area. We enjoy spending our spare time going on road trips to see the natural beauty that Oregon offers.
