Ryan Oakes

Wake Programs Coordinator

Meet Ryan

I grew up in Houston, Texas (yes, I support all of their sports teams), but I’ve moved around quite a bit since then. First to Oklahoma State University where I earned a B.S. in Mathematics, then to New Braunfels, Tx (1 yr), and most recently Breckenridge, Colorado (9 months). I am pumped to programmatically serve kids in the Wake Ministry as I walk through life alongside them and watch them grow closer to the Lord.

Not growing up in a Christian home, one constant venue throughout my faith has been T Bar M Camp Travis. The Lord used the people there when I was just 13 years old to show me the love of Christ like I’d never seen before; afterward, God gave me the opportunity to serve on staff there for six summers and one school year. It was at camp where God really gave me a passion for programming in student ministry, I love the way a fun ministry setting helps break down barriers between students and leaders so they can experience an encounter with Him.

On top of ministry, I love hanging out with good company, spoiling my pup Hazel, and anything that involves sports and competition; playing football in Texas really set me up for that one. Lastly, I’m always up for a good laugh or a nice little farkle that might result in some fun consequences…My family always said “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt… then it’s hilarious!”
