Ryan Smith   Associate Pastor Middle School Ministry   ryan.smith@jubileeseoul.com    Brief Bio  Spent my first 25 years of life in rural town New York until I got married in 2008 to my best friend, Alana. Since then, we've lived in Seoul, Western PA, Shanghai, and Northern Virginia for 2-3 years each as God led to teach and serve. Been given two blonde-haired, blue-eyed boys who make fatherhood one of the sweetest roles in life. God has personally invited us to return to Korea where a huge part of our hearts has resided.   Passion for the Church  Even though my age increases, my heart for middle and high school students does as well. I've been serving in youth ministry in different capacities since 2001 and still love it. As much as I love to prepare and give messages, my heart is with the broken individual as well as working as a team to accomplish greater things for the Kingdom of God.   Personal Passion  Basketball, Teamwork, Site-seeing, Music, Reading, Meaningful Conversation, and Coffee!
