Ryan and Brie are passionate about the Bridegroom and His bride experiencing intimacy through prayer and worship! They have a heart to see believers come into the full realization and acceptance of “being adopted into the family of God.” Realizing and walking in the reality that we are “sons and daughters” of our Father is key in fulfilling the destiny God has for his Church!
Ryan and Brie can both admit that they got caught up in the “spin cycle” of doing a lot of activity for Jesus but missing the true connection and heart of Jesus. Feeling burnt-out and distant from Jesus, God laid this word upon Ryan’s heart: “Never sacrifice intimacy with Jesus with activity for Jesus.” An eternal mindset and eternally focused activity will flow out of an intimacy with Jesus. But intimacy is the key and foundation!
Their heart as part of the DN team is to see an increase in intimacy within the bride of Christ. They specifically feel called to see this come to fruition through increased prayer and worship within the local church, the city of Wichita, and beyond. They feel called to equip, encourage, and challenge local worship leaders. They continue to seek and pray about local opportunities/strategies to foster intimacy with Jesus. Ryan currently serves as a local pastor at Reliance Community Church.
