My name is Ryan Rijken. I am a worship leader, musician, and creative artist based out of the North Dallas area. I love local coffee shops, drumming, watching a good flick, fireplaces, tobacco pipes, playing guitar, rainy days, Jesus Christ, and of course…friends.
I grew up moving around the United States frequently with a father who was busy serving our nation and a mother who was busy teaching us how to live. Unlike many of the people I know, I am blessed enough to have parents who love each other after 25 years of marriage and continue to serve each other, their children, and God faithfully. I’m also blessed to know that I’ve experienced many different cultures and have a unique perspective on how I view life.
I currently serve in the Shift Community at Grace Outreach Center in Plano, TX. I love our people and I know that God has put me here to help affect the culture of our church, our community, and the body of Christ as a whole.
