Ryan Ries

All Ryan could remember was waking up the next morning to his friends saying, “Dude, we thought you were dead last night.” The drugs, the parties, the girls and sleepless nights followed Ryan from high school into his skateboarding career. But, from that one night his life began to change.

He started a search for God.  Was going to church going to be enough? What about his secret addiction? Would it mean giving up his old lifestyle?

    Ryan, your testimony is awesome. I love how radical and honest you are. I saw you recently at CCF St. Pete and heard you were going to several of the high schools around me and I think that is great. The kids definitely need someone they could relate to telling about how wonderful Jesus is and what he can do to change their lives and help them overcome their fears, and anxieties, depression, etc… I am praying for you today for any and all issues you are still dealing with. You said you went into a liquor store and looked away from porn magazines which is incredible because I know how difficult it is. I hope you are also dealing with any alcohol addictions you may have. I have several brothers who are alcoholics and I know how hard that can be too. Continue to follow Jesus’s lead as you have been. I want to read and hear more stories about what God does in your life in the future.

    Hi Brother, my name is Rick Martinez. I used to go to your dad’s church when it was in West Covina 1981 through 1984, I was at my worst at that time. Loved the church, I remember on Friday nights your uncle Mark was teaching during those times, awesome teacher like your dad. Just heard your testimony. Freedom in Christ what or who can out beat the Lord’s plan in are life, Right! I met my wife at Calvary chapel west Covina 36 years ago. My son lives out there in Pomona going to school at Mt sac, he spent 5 years in the military, he came back angry, since then maybe two years ago he got saved, but I know he’s struggling with his walk with the Lord. God bless, take care young brother
