My name is Ryan. I am a Youth and Music Pastor at Park Avenue Pentecostal Church in Mount Pearl, Canada. I am also a Web Designer with a deep interest in Social Media and marketing.
This is my blog. It is focused on Technology, Social Media and Web Design. My goal is to help you communicate your brand in the most effective way possible. Many of the posts will refer to how these technologies can help in a Church context. But many of the principles can be applied to other areas.
I will write mostly about the areas mentioned above, but I may from time to time post about things that relate to ministry and sometimes other miscellaneous topics.
If you are looking for information that can help get your ministry, or business, get started in the area of Web or Social Media, then I believe I can help!
I will post three to four times per week. To make sure you stay up-to-date with my blog, you can subscribe to my RSS feed or enter your email address in the form in my sidebar.

I was the son of a Pastor. I spent my entire life moving around with my parents in ministry. Now, I am a Youth and Music Pastor myself!
After High School, I went to college to study Multimedia and Computer Animation. Following the completion of that diploma, I went back to college to study Programming and Networking.
I then worked for a company called INNOVA Multimedia as a Junior Application Developer. Following a year of working for this company, I decided that it was time to follow what God was saying to me and go to Vanguard Bible College where I studied music.
For the past six years I have been in full-time ministry. I have a great passion for Youth and Music ministry. But I also love the opportunities I have to use my gifts in the area of web design and multimedia.
I currently volunteer as a Promotions and Social Media guy for YC Newfoundland & Labrador. I am loving the amazing the opportunity to contribute to this great ministry!
I also develop websites on my own time to try and stay current and up-to-date on the new and exciting technologies that are happening in this field.
I am married to Crystal-Lynn. We have been married for five years. She has a blog as well called Children Shine. It’s all about Children’s Ministry. Make sure to check it out if you are working in that area.
We have one son who I believe is the coolest kid in all of history.
