ryansimLead Pastor

Ryan is our Lead Pastor.  He lives in Ajax with his wife Kristin and their two young sons. He is a commuter, working as a technology consultant in addition to leading Redeemer Church.  To help busy commuters under stress, he developed a mobile app called Redeem the Commute.

Previously, he was the founder of StormWeb, one of Canada’s first web hosting companies. He studied engineering physics before becoming a pastor in the Anglican Church. He led four churches through a restructuring and revitalization before joining the staff of a large urban church, where he led the planting of reconnect – a new church of young professionals in Toronto.
