Associate Professor of Congregational Theology and Cultural Apologetics, Missional Training Center – Phoenix

Dr. Mark Ryan is a pastor, evangelist, and apologist who serves as Sage Christianity’s Executive Director. He previously directed the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Seminary after pastoring congregations in the United States and his home country of Australia.

Mark spent numerous years working with L’Abri Fellowship in Boston and Vancouver, ministering to people investigating the truth claims of the Bible. L’Abri, French for “the shelter,” is the ministry started by Francis and Edith Schaeffer, intended to meaningfully engage with those seeking answers to questions about Christianity. Mark and his wife, Terri, are known for the way they open their lives and their home to those who question God, are done with church, feel at a loss with faith, or feel curious but suspicious about Christianity.

Presently, Mark splits his time between St. Louis, Missouri, where he lives and serves Sage Christianity and several other local apologetics ministries, and Phoenix, Arizona, where he teaches theology and cultural studies at the Missional Training Center (MTC), an extension site of Calvin Theological Seminary.

Mark has been married to Terri since 1996. They have three children.
