Galen Ryman joined the staff as the Executive Assimilation and Teaching Pastor in 2019. He married Justean in 2013, and they have one daughter named Lillian. His hobbies include exploring new coffee shops, reading, golfing, or hiking with his family. His favorite author is NT Wright, but he enjoys reading almost anything nonfiction that deals with leadership, ministry, or self-development.
Galen graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry. He then received his Masters of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary. Before his current role at C1, Galen was a Lead Youth Pastor at Crossbridge Community Church.
He shows his passion for leadership and ministry by his vision for his ministry at C1: “I have a passion to see God’s people embrace new people who feel like they could never belong in a church and make them a part of the family. The most fulfilling part of ministry for me is seeing someone go from a first-time guest to a follower of Jesus who is connected to their church and passionate about serving others.”
