I was just looking for some of your old music from Masters (Sadly, I did not find it) and came across this page. I can see God has done amazing things in your life. Please tell Lindsey I said Hi!

Hi Ryan –
I came upon your blog because I am searching for a church that has a special needs ministry, and it seems like GPBC does… a friend of mine, single father of 2 boys (his wife passed 4 years ago) is desperately in need of a church that supports special needs for his son Joshua, who is autistic. Jim has his MDiv, and was called to ministry several years ago, but due to some horrific life circumstances – has been limited to ministering at home to his 2 boys. He has a similar love to what you seem to have for studying the scriptures in their original languages, along with a gift for teaching, so I think he’d be a great asset for your church! Because of what he’s been through, he feels a tremendous burden for the challenging, yet under-served group of special needs families. He/I filled out the form and am awaiting response, so are hoping to meet you and be a part of GPBC soon!
In the meantime, I am looking forward to reading and sharing your blog with Jim.
Ryan, I just saw your blog and thoughts about the election. It was excellent. Of course, that’s what I expect. We are very proud of our number one grandson as we are of all our grandsons and granddaughters! Grandpa Boys
Thanks for a great message at C3 this Sunday!
A question came to me today as I was reviewing the book by Richard Owen Roberts – Repentance the first word of the gospel.
How do I feel the weight of my sin? The Lord lead me here to familiarize myself with the issues in Ezekiel. I thank you for your provocation to mourn over my community and nation.
Who mourns the sinfulness of American Churches?
Praise God for His depth of mercy!
