Ryan Zimmer 

Ryan is a worship leader, songwriter, and audio engineer whose main passion is to know Jesus and make Him known in the earth. His primary focus and background in worship leading and songwriting has led him to take the journey of faith from Pennsylvania to Florida in 2012 to be part of a church plant as a worship pastor. In addition to leading the Sunday main service at CPC, Ryan leads the worship and prayer nights every Wednesday and oversees the audio/video production ministry. In this great life adventure with God, Ryan's desire is to see his music connect this generation to the presence and love of Christ and see the nations transformed by worship and prayer.

I feel blessed to be on the staff of CPC.  I have a degree in Christian Education and have served as a children's pastor most of my life.  My goal is to work with the parents, children, church members and staff to build a safe, energetic and biblically solid program for the young students of our church.
