During the two years that he led there, he learned how to speak, preach, write, plan events, organize teaching schedules and teach classes in addition to developing numerous skills through merit work, camps, and leadership training.
As he grew older and the Lord led him away from Rangers; but Ryan continued to learn by teaching several Bible studies, developing curriculum, writing a 366 day devotional book and launching into a service-based business.
