“I was terrified to start this ministry, so I asked God that if He was in this, that he would provide. And he did. God is in this ministry, and this ministry belongs to God.”
Founder / Director / Speaker
Ryan is the founder and project director of Give the Word in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. After spending over 4 years as the director of another Bible distribution ministry, Ryan saw first hand how the Word of God was changing people’s lives, just like it had his. Ryan had a passion for local outreach and sharing the gospel starting in his own backyard and sought out what it would look like for missionaries and ministries right here at home to have access to Free Bibles that were designed to reach people who were far from God.
God answered this prayer and through a series of miracles, Ryan joined Equip Canada and Give the Word was born. Give the Word was started with a passion for outreach and has since grown to reaching ministries across Canada and into Spanish speaking countries as well.
Ryan travels Canada, speaking in churches on the topic of outreach and evangelism, equipping believers to make sharing the gospel a part of their life.
Give the Word has grown into a full time ministry with two additional staff. Give the Word is currently donating over 50,000 Bibles per year to ministries, churches and missionaries in need of outreach focused Bibles. This happens through fundraising for all of the bibles that are purchased and donated through Give the Word. Give the Word encouraged people to support them financially so that the Bible can be made free to anyone who need them, wether they are a church, ministry or someone who feels called to personal evangelism and outreach.
Ryan is married to his beautiful wife, Jennie and together they have 3 children; Abby, Ellie and Toby.
