Kids With Purpose YOUTH
Every 4th Friday — 6-8pm — 7th-12th Grade
Every 2nd Tuesday — 6:30-8pm — 7th-12th Grade
At the church (unless otherwise noted)
Kids With Purpose YOUTH exists to be a safe place for teens to create and build friendships, have fun, and be equipped in faith and good works through Bible study, prayer, and acts of service. We seek to accomplish this through regularly meeting together for FOOD – FUN – FAITH every 4th Friday from 6-8pm. We will eat together, have fun together, and dig into the Bible together! We also hope to engage in fun trips, service projects, and other relationship and character-building activities as we are able.
Pastor, Youth Overseer
Pastor Ryan serves currently as a worship leader and Minister/shepherd for Live with Purpose Church. Ryan has served in various leadership roles over the years at In the Light Ministries, Lancaster City.
With a pastoral anointing, creative personality and a heart for worship, Ryan is the perfect complement to the otherwise apostolic minded leadership team. Ryan is intensely directed in ministry by the active and uncompromising word of God yet deeply grounded by an uncommon compassion for his neighbor. Ryan in tandem with the other leaders will look to build up, maintain and sustain the spiritual and practical health of the ministry core team and congregation. He lives in Lancaster with his beautiful wife Jodi, and their four boys. Ryan and Jodi co-labor for the gospel in so many ways as an amazing team in our ministry including small groups leadership. He became a licensed minister, and then an ordained pastor through In the Light Ministries Fellowship International.
