Our Leadership Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Rev. Evan & Heather Ryder 

Pastor Evan is excited to lead this congregation in making disciples in and around the Tavares community.  He received his call into the ministry shortly after encountering God at the age of 18. Since then, he has been preparing to lead a congregation.  Evan comes to Tavares along with his wife, Heather and his four sons.
