Ryan NixWorship Leader

“My desire is to reach everyone I can for Jesus! He has put an insatiable desire on my heart to lead people to the throne of God through music. God is so Awesome!” – Ryan

Ryan was saved by Jesus at an early age, but didn’t fully understand what it meant to be a Christ follower until his late 20’s when God challenged him greatly in his faith. For Ryan, praise and worship is more than music; it is what he does in response to God’s presence in his life. His philosophy on worship comes from Romans 12: 1, in that we should offer our complete lives to the Creator as a living sacrifice as our true act of worship, holy and pleasing to God.

Ryan has been actively leading worship at NMCC for the last 10 years. Ryan lives in Jeffersonville, Indiana with his wife, Lindsay, son Asher, and their dog, Kai.
