Ryan Egan

Director of Worship & Creative Arts

Ryan started as Director of Worship and Creative Arts on July 1, 2013. Ryan came to Living Word with extensive experience both professionally (in the church and secular world) and as a volunteer.

Ryan was part-time Director of Worship at a Missouri Synod Lutheran church for nearly five years while he was studying music composition at the University of Sioux Falls. After transitioning out of that role Ryan worked at our sister congregation for a time as a Lay Ministry Assistant. During that time he received his associate's degree in Graphic Arts & Multimedia which led to a full-time graphic design position at Alpha Omega Publications in Rock Rapids Iowa. Ryan had begun attending Living Word during this time and was co-leading the worship ministry in a volunteer role as well as consulting in several tech and arts areas.

After making a transition to a marketing specialist role at Alpha Omega, Ryan found employment at South Dakota's fastest growing company as of August 2013, Click Rain Online Marketing. All this time he had been praying that God would open the door for full-time employment within a Free Lutheran congregation. God provided greatly and we're glad to have Ryan on staff!

Ryan loves his wife and three kids dearly, blogs at I am an Offering, and desires that the Arts would be fostered at Living Word, giving artists a Christian worldview of art and a foundation to stand on when mixing with the secular artistic culture.
