W. Ryan Hall
Our Pastor of Discipleship and Family Ministries, Pastor Ryan, believes the Lord is actively and unceasingly working to bring every single person into a closer relationship with God. “One of my favorite Bible passages, Psalm 40, begins with the singer crying out to the Lord, and then God responds by leaning down, listening, lifting out of despair, and locating the singer on solid rock. I have seen this pattern repeat in so many life stories, including my own.”
Pastor Ryan has served churches in Central, South, and North Florida. He and his wife, Jessamyn, fell in love while students at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) where they served together on the staff of the Gator Wesley Foundation. Jessamyn is a Pre-K ESE Teacher at Summerfield Crossings Elementary School. They are still serving together as they raise their twin daughters and foster children, and build bridges in the neighborhood. “We believe God is calling everyone to live in a manner so that the world looks more and more like God’s kingdom—where people of all ages and stages live in harmony and dignity and children flourish with safety and adventure.”
Pastor Ryan loves, music, Star Wars, horses, pancit, reading, ancient history, Cuban coffee, camping and hiking, poetry, chickens, Lilo and Stitch, dinosaurs, landscaping, art, astronomy, and otters.
