I met up with Ryan on Main Street in St. Charles for his Summer Senior Session a few weeks back! Ryan is involved in the Middle School ministry at our church, so my hubby and I have been able to get to know Ryan over the past several months! He is an incredible leader and those Middle Schoolers so look up to him!
I have all the details about Ryan’s dream job, his most memorable moment of high school and the three words that he uses to sum himself up (plus a picture of his awesome Star Wars socks!). Check it all out below!
Ryan has been involved in both Football and Track throughout high school. In fact, his most memorable moment so far has been the first-round playoff victory against a highly favored team in football this past year. He said that they pulled off an upset on a very good team! Talk about exciting, right?! Ryan said that though he hasn’t experienced Senior year, he’s pretty sure it will be his favorite year! As for right now, he said that he has enjoyed Junior year more than any other. Ryan said that the growth that took place was immense and it was really when he started to get more involved with church, school, and community.
Being a youth pastor is Ryan’s dream job (I’m totally partial to thinking this is awesome, since my husband and I are in youth ministry!). Ryan’s dream college is the University of Pittsburgh. He said that his parents met there and that he would love to follow in their footsteps. However, he said that he will likely attend Lindenwood University because of how practical the the distance to home is and their great academic programs (sounds like a smart guy to me!).
Ryan has a huge heart for community, which was shown in the three words he used to sum himself up: lover of people. I can’t wait to see where this guy goes and what the future has to hold for him! Best of luck, Ryan!
