Pastor Ryan has been the lead pastor of Element Church since we launched in October 2015. He is proud of his roots in Baltimore and couldn't be more excited to be reaching people so close to home with the gospel. Since 2006, Ryan has served in ministry, where he started in youth ministry and whole-heartedly worked to see students meet Jesus on their level. At Element, Pastor Ryan is committed to put brokenness on display every single week to help people take their next step with Christ.
He and his wife, Kim, enjoy building Element together. Kim faithfully serves behind the scenes and is passionate about serving and caring for Element's amazing volunteer team. Ryan and Kim love to travel, watch sports, and spend time with good friends. Ryan is passionate about good food, tattoos, and having real conversations.

Liz has been the kids ministry director since Element launched in October 2015, and the groups director since January 2017. Liz has always dreamed of being in ministry and helping people connect with Jesus in a way that makes sense to them. She is passionate about helping people grow in their intimacy with Jesus and helping them find their talents to serve God and people.
Her and her husband, Eric, love binge watching Forensic Files and The Office, cheering for the Vikings, cooking vegan food, and enjoying beautiful weather by hiking and riding their bikes.
