Ryan and his wife, Lindsey, started attending RCC in August 2011, and Ryan began serving on the worship team shortly thereafter. Ryan is blessed to have a wife who not only puts up with, but encourages his love for music...as long as it does not disturb the neighbors. These days, Ryan and Linz spend much of their time chasing around their twin girls, Ella and Braelyn. One of Ryan's all-time favorite lyrics comes from Relient K, who sing that "the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair."
Lindsey has attended RCC with her husband Ryan since 2011. She became the volunteer events coordinator in the fall of 2012. Lindsey has served on multiples service teams during her time at RCC.
She is a mom of toddler twin girls, crafter, and novice seamstress. The Lord has given her deep conviction to see the name of Jesus proclaimed in Reston and is excited to see what the Lord will do in our community.
She lives her life like author Jack Johnson once wrote, “The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”
