Join us on July 14th for Rev. Ryan Scott's first Sunday at Newman UMC!
Previously he has served churches in Toledo OR, Eugene OR, Springfield OR, and Seattle WA. Pastor Ryan is a Licensed Pastor in the Oregon-Idaho Conference of the United Methodist Church. He received his education at the Claremont School of Theology in Southern CA. Prior to being a pastor Ryan worked in after school program management and youth recreation programming. Pastor Ryan loves exploring new ideas and imaginative ways of being church in the 21st century. He is passionate about social justice and the use of creativity to bring about positive social change in a community.
In his free time he enjoys spending time in the outdoors hiking, camping and exploring. Pastor Ryan lives with his fiance, Andre Casey, who is a graphic designer and marketing professional. They have a dog, Bailey, who is a bundle of energy and joy and can be expected to be seen around the church from time to time.
We are planning a pizza party to welcome Pastor Ryan and his fiancé, Andre, to Grants Pass! Check back soon for more details on this event.
