Ryan Goyer is joining our team!

BlogPic

We’re so excited to welcome Ryan Goyer to the Restoration staff team as our new Communications Coordinator! Here’s a chance to meet Ryan before he officially begins his role on July 9.

I grew up in Sterling, VA, the son of two native New Englanders. I went to college at Christopher Newport University (which some call the “Alabama of DIII”) and spent most of my time there doing the things I love most: spending time with friends, discussing theology, playing and coaching sports, and going on long walks. Some other random affections (as David calls them): reading, watching all Boston sports teams (we’re in a golden era), Colorado (one summer out there hooked me for life), driving on two-lane roads (Georgetown Pike in the early afternoon), and getting lost in the woods (preferably in the mountains).

I came back to Northern VA to be a Falls Church Fellow (Class of 2018). During my fellows year, I worked in the youth ministry office and fell in love not only with the people but with the Anglican church. I was fortunate enough to stay on at The Falls Church Anglican this past year as John Yates’ study assistant. Needless to say, I have been (and will continue to be) richly blessed by my time as a Fellow!

After witnessing me nearly burning down the house trying to fix breakfast on a retreat, David connected me with the staff at Restoration, and before I knew it, I accepted the awesome opportunity to work here as the Communications Coordinator.

I’m excited to be a part of such a fun and kind staff team and to see how God continues to grow me through this role. Look for me early in the morning trying to practice on the piano in the sanctuary.
