RYAN GOLDEn

Vicar

My name is Ryan Golden and I’m excited to be in the Lord’s service here at Saving Grace. I have been a member of the LCMS church since 1996 when I moved to Gilbert, Arizona with my parents and brother. My family moved to Arizona from a small farm town in Ohio called Fremont. I met my better half Rachel in 2007 and got married 11 months later in 2008. We have six amazing children together, four boys and two girls. We have lived in the San Tan Valley/Queen Creek area since 2012. In my spare time I enjoy any and every sport, I enjoy the outdoors, camping hunting and fishing. I have been a high school football official for more than a decade. I also enjoy reading great novels and motivational books outside of my time in devotion.
