These people love to serve with a SPIRIT OF JOY! 

Ryan Gerlach Pastor


Ryan was called to and ordained at SPIRIT OF JOY in April of 2017 and has loved every minute! He hails from Wisconsin (The Promised Land of the U.S.) and yes - he enjoys cheese very much. Ryan definitely married up with his lovely wife Liane and has a 3 year old boy named Ben that never runs out of energy. His greatest passion is to see people fall even more in love with God and pastoring a people that love others without limits. 

Fun Fact: Ryan was once in a band called THE LONELY NINJAS that traveled all across the eastern part of southeast Wisconsin near the western part of the middle. Don't bother looking them up  (please)
