We're thrilled to announce an exciting new addition to our pastoral staff team! Deacon Ryan Boettcher, who visited Rez a few months ago with his wife Bliss, accepted the position of Assistant Clergy shortly after their visit. With Bliss preparing to deliver twins this summer, there were a few more details to work out regarding timing before our official announcement. Ryan will be serving on staff as Deacon overseeing and developing our pastoral care, worship services, and other operations. This is from Dcn Ryan,

“Hey friends! We’re so grateful for the opportunity to join you and the community at Rez-South Austin this August. We can’t wait to be there (all 5 of us)! Keep us in prayer as we pack, sell our house, have two more babies(!), and move down to be with you.”

For the stage-of-life of our parish, Ryan is a great catch at the right time. As we keep participating with God to welcome, shape, and send disciples in South Austin, we have needed to broaden and strengthen our staff support for key ministries that support our church family and engage our neighborhood. Our curate, Justin Davenport, has been a tremendous addition to this need, as will Ryan Boettcher. Look what God is doing as we continue to cast our nets into the deep trusting His leading for Rez!
