Ryan JantziMinistry Director

Ryan started as Ministry Director with ONMB in October of 2021. Prior, he was with the Kingsfield churches for ten years: Five years of bi-vocational pastoring with a house church plant, Kingsfield – Clinton and another 5 years as Lead Pastor with Kingsfield – Zurich Mennonite Church.

As a self-described ‘church nerd’, discipleship is Ryan’s heartbeat. His passion is discovering emerging leaders and inspiring them toward life as disciples who make disciples. He is pumped about exploring with ONMB leaders and churches where the Holy Spirit is stirring in new mission contexts. Leading as a facilitator, Ryan will discern, inspire, connect, champion and resource these missional expressions to embody and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ryan completed a Master of Divinity with MB Seminary in Langley, BC, a Bachelor of Arts with Briercrest Bible College and a Certificate of Conflict Management with Conrad Grebel University College. Currently, he is doing online MBA studies with Messiah University.

Ryan is married to Brittany, who is a registered nurse, and they have 4 children, Grace (10), Caleb (8), Lucas (7) and Hannah (4). They currently live in Zurich, ten minutes north of Grand Bend. Ryan is an avid Leafs, Jays and Raptors fan, but struggles with ongoing disillusionment with his beloved Leafs. Camping and hiking are a favourite past-times for Ryan and Brittany. Watching thru-hike on YouTube became a ‘covid hobby’ which has developed into a love for backpacking adventures.
