Ryan & Andrea Ward
Ryan has a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a Pastoral Emphasis from Montana Bible College and a Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Ryan and Andrea served in pastoral ministry for 8 years before Ryan was hired full time at Montana Bible College – where he is now president. In addition to Ryan teaching several Bible Exposition classes, Homiletics, and Peacemaking, among other things, Ryan and Andrea co-teach the Family Development class. They both have several years of experience counseling teenagers, couples (both pre-marital, and marital), and they have worked with victims of sexual and physical abuse. Ryan also has experience mediating conflicts. Because they know very little about horses, they are content to be on the board and available for intensive counseling outside of BYR. They joined the board of Breakaway Youth Ranch because they love to watch God grow small ministries. Their family (they have two kids, Gracie and Caleb) enjoys Hunting, hiking, cooking, sewing, poetry, piano and basketball. Have fun guessing who likes what!
