Music has defined my life since my earliest memories. I was blessed to have many doors opened to me to express myself through song. It never occurred to me then that God gave me a love for music so that it would one day draw me close to Him.
Throughout the early years of my life and into adulthood I had no understanding of the saving grace that came through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Poor choices and the resulting consequences plagued me and left me looking for healing, answers and peace. One evening I attended a Billy Graham Crusade and made a decision that would dramatically change the course of the rest of my life. I walked through the doors unsaved and broken, and came out a new creation. God reached me that night through the music and worship. He had the perfect way to reach into my heart and draw me to want to know Jesus in a real and personal way. I wanted that very blessed assurance they were singing about. I made a promise to God at that conference that I would spend the rest of my life singing only for Jesus. And I have kept that promise.
In 2009, after much prayer and confirmation, I established Jeanne Ryan Worship Ministries. Through this ministry I have the privilege of sharing about the goodness and glory of our great God – to invite the power of the Holy Spirit to flow abundantly – and I am blessed to sing and tell of our beautiful Jesus – of His transforming love and healing power.
In 2015, I was ordained as a Minister of Worship by Rev. Peter Whitehouse. On my ordination certificate is a verse that fits my calling perfectly- “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24
