Community Director

Meet Ryan

My heart and passion within ministry is to lead and disciple others to experience the fullness of who Christ is, what He has done and who they are because of that! I am so thankful to be a part of a ministry where we get to help provide that same passion on a weekly basis.

I was born and raised in Austin in a family devoted to the Texas Longhorns, but as it was time to go off to college, I was ‘plucked out of darkness and placed into the light’ of Texas A&M University! Whooop!!! It was at A&M that I became best friends with my beautiful bride, Callie. We have been married since the spring of 2006. We were blessed with a little girl named Davey in August 2010 and another daughter named Evie Leigh in August 2012.

Before working at Watermark I worked for five years in a youth ministry called K-Life that focused on discipleship relationships. K-Life was started by some parents of its sister ministry, Kanakuk Kamps. The Lord has used Kanakuk in immense ways in my life. I trusted Christ at Kanakuk in the summer of 1991 when I was 11 years old. I was a camper for nine years, an employee for nine years, ministered alongside my wife there for five of those years and spent five years in K-Life as an Area Director. The Lord has used Kanakuk & Watermark as the two major organizations to help me know Christ more, love Christ more and want to live for Christ’s Kingdom.

I am blessed to be a part of this local church, humbled to be a part of this staff team, and excited to see how God uses this local body of believers to redeem this city and this world for Christ!
