  • Ryan Webster

    Lead Pastor

    Coming all the way from the wild west town of Dodge City, Ryan has been our lead pastor since 2003. He is passionate about his wife, 3 children, preaching, worshiping, teaching, hunting, fishing, and woodworking. His vision as our pastor is to equip the church to be responsible in doing God's work and building up the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12). His main claim to fame was harvesting a 200 5/8, 24 point buck and being featured in Buckmaster's magazine, "Rack". (and of course catching more fish than Pastor Jarred)

    Rachel moved to Larned  with her husband Ryan in 2003, involving herself in many church activities in a volunteer capacity. In 2014 she started serving the church as the secretary (where she can "officially" try to keep her husband in line). Rachel loves working with kids, helping out in different areas of the children's ministry,  and serving kids of any age.
