Ryan Ball, Ph.D.

Registrar & Director of Admissions


Ryan completed his Ph.D. in Old Testament biblical studies and wrote on the endlessly fascinating (and highly encouraging) book of Ecclesiastes. He has a love for helping others see the Old Testament as God's living Word for the church today. Ryan is married to his wife, Sarah, and they have three wonderful kids. Ryan loves to spend his free time going for a run, hiking in the mountains, watching his kids do track and field, or playing games with his family.
