Ryan Whatley

Special Projects Manager
Department: Ministry Team

Ryan was born and raised in Thunder Bay. He married Carolyn, a Thunder Bay girl herself, and together have 5 kids in addition to fostering children. Ryan’s been a part of Grassroots church since the early days, involved with the Great Commission School and supporting the growth of the Grassroots community.

Ryan loves to tease, much to the joy and frustration of many of the children and teens in our church. At the same time, he is also passionate about discipling people through authentic relationships and coming alongside people where they are at by helping them grow in their vision of God and realizing their role in God’s story and His work in humanity. He enjoys being outside and working on practical projects – which is what makes him perfect for the role of Special Projects Manager!
