About

Lead Pastor at Awakening Church in Silicon Valley and trying to dabble in this writing thing.

Hi, my name is Ryan

I’ve been married to my incredible wife Jenny since 2002. And we have 3 amazing kids who are growing up way too fast – Ella, Ryder & Miles.

Jenny and I have been in pastoral leadership in church world for nearly 2 decades together. In the fall of 2012, we started out on the wild adventure of planting Awakening Church in the heart of Silicon Valley. Our journey has been filled with highs and lows, and we want to be able to share what we’ve learned along the way.

By God’s grace, Awakening is a thriving church reaching tons of young people in the heart of one of the least churched places in America.

We have a passion for seeing this generation awaken to new life in Jesus and coming alongside leaders.
