Our Pastor
Our pastor is Ryan Redwine, Ph.D., known simply as Pastor Ryan @VillageOKC. Ryan has been in ministry for over twenty years. Before answering the Holy Spirit’s call to preach & undershepherd at the local church, Ryan served as a lay leader, a camp counselor with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a student minister, a collegiate minister, an associational and campus missionary with the North American Mission Board, & a professor of theology at the seminary level.
 
Ryan has been on and led numerous mission trips, internationally and locally. Ryan’s greatest passion is to preach and teach the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God with great enthusiasm and to lead VillageOKC to have a great love for the countless Lost in our OKC community and Nations by sharing the Gospel. Ryan is leading Village to live the disciplemaking life where Jesus is King: Over Our Lives, Church, & City and to serve our community and city as a Lighthouse Of Love.
 
On a personal note, Ryan is married to his beautiful Bride, Stacy (M.A. Missiology, Swbts, 2006), and he is the first person to acknowledge that he married way up. Ryan and Stacy have been partners in ministry for decades and they get such joy out of reaching all people from all walks of life. They love serving King Jesus!
