Be Disciples. Make Disciples.


Worship Team Leader

My name is Ryan and I am the worship leader and director at Elevation Church.  I am married to the love of my life, Valerie, and we have two beautiful little princess daughters. I began leading worship at Elevation in August of 2017 and officially joined the leadership team at the beginning of 2018.  God has blessed our music program with incredibly talented musicians and it has been a beautiful experience seeing the church family grow in corporate worship right along with our musicians.  Our music is a healthy mix of modern, traditional as well as some original worship songs.

Between my wife and I, we have 26 years of ministry leadership experience (really grew up in church leadership families) and have served in a variety of roles including African missionary, music ministry, preaching and teaching, youth ministry, Mexico Missions work with orphans, children’s ministry, young adult ministry, and more. I am very passionate about sharing the gospel through music, teaching, as well as other art forms.  Over the past few years my deep joy and passion has centered around song writing and I have seen God opening some wonderful doors through my music.  Nothing is sweeter for me than watching my own church family connecting with and worshiping Jesus through my personal music.

I believe that the foundation of true worship is a willing heart;  A willing heart that is actively searching to know God more and step deeper into His Kingdom. From the heart of worship flows the outward actions of worship such as music, etc.  I believe in excellence, planning and clarity; they are extremely important in music and worship leading.I also believe that passion and freedom are as equally important.  And when you combine these values with the powerful Spirit of God and the freedom to simply be authentic (the true you), something powerful is bound to happen.  This is how I would describe our corporate worship times on Sunday.
