REVEREND DAVE KELLEY
Leading Our Prayers
Hi, my name is Ryan Mendenhall. Various people have given me various titles, such as Rev. Ryan, Pastor Ryan, and a few that I cannot tell! But you can call me Ryan because I would love to meet you, get to know you, and have you call me friend. My calling in ministry is to build loving relationships and guide others to grow in their relationship to God and others just as Jesus commanded his followers in Matthew 22:37-39 “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
I have been blessed abundantly by God’s grace in my personal life. God called me into ministry shortly after marrying my wife, Wendy, in 2007. We took Joshua 24:15 to heart – “as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” – and we committed to serve God and follow Him wherever He leads us. In addition, God has blessed Wendy and I with three rambunctious boys (Luke 13, Ethan 11, and Adam 9) who keep us young and on our toes.
My first appointment began in 2014, serving the Franklin Heights – Maple Grove charge in Mount Airy, NC, and for the last four years I have served the Midway-Chapel Hill charge in Reidsville, NC. I am a graduate of North Davidson High School and have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from UNCG, a Bachelor of Theology from John Wesley University, and a Master of Divinity from Hood Theological Seminary.
I invite you to join us at Shiloh as we sow, grow, and serve together so that Christ’s light shines out from our church into the community we are all called to love.
