MISSION CANADA URBAN WORKER
Ministry Location: Alberta
Ministry Focus: Film and Entertainment Industry
Ryan’s burden for the entertainment industry began when Jesus transformed his life while working as head producer for two of Canada’s largest radio stations. He became a spiritual caregiver to the people who had the ears of hundreds of thousands of Calgarians each day.
The power of film, television, music, and the 'Arts' in general is undeniable in our culture. In fact, the Arts aren’t just a reflection of culture, but a driving force in changing our culture’s worldview. So, what if you could use the power of the gospel to influence the people who influence the masses? You can.
Ryan has responded to the call of God on his life to reach into the film and entertainment industry in Calgary as a Mission Canada worker. He holds what is called “Underground” meetings, a safe place for those in the industry to come to, where they can hear the good news of Jesus, and can also be discipled in their faith, then trained and equipped to go out and reach others. The Calgary Underground is seeing people engage with one another from the world of film, music, tv, theatre, arts and more. Jesus is transforming lives in an industry that influences not only our nation, but our continent and the world!
