Ryan serves as content manager for the Faith & Work Classroom, DIFW’s online theological learning platform. Alongside his work with Denver Institute, Ryan is an instructor in the Division of Christian Thought at Denver Seminary, where he teaches theology and the history of Christianity, and as associate pastor at Foothills Fellowship Church in Littleton. He holds a B.A. in biblical studies from Colorado Christian University, a Th.M. in ecclesiastical history, and a Ph.D. in theology from the University of Edinburgh. He has published in the areas of inter-religious dialogue, historical theology, and Christian ethics. Ryan lives with his wife, Adrienne, and their badly behaved dog, Daphne, in Lakewood. Most importantly, Ryan is a diehard fan of the Denver Nuggets—and he liked them even when they were terrible.
