About Us

Welcome to First UPC!

is a Gospel-centered, Family-focused, Mission-minded, Truth-oriented community of Christ-followers. We are a church made up of ordinary people who have the privilege of knowing and serving an extraordinary God!

We pray that God touches you each time you walk through the doors of First UPC. We are humbled that God has entrusted us with the amazing ministry of this church and are so privileged to serve His people. 



Meet our Team

Lead Pastor


R has been ministering in the area for more than fifteen years and has been privileged to serve in a variety of roles during that time. His pastoral experience ranges from Children to Youth to Adults, and he has a deep passion for communicating the transforming Truth of God?s Word to all generations. Ryan is a published author and conference speaker, and received his B.A. in Political Science and his M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Biola University in La Mirada, CA. He is currently pursuing his Doctor of Ministry degree through Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development.

In all of this, Ryan maintains that his resume should really be made up of the challenges and failures that have given him a genuine understanding of grace and the Gospel. Ryan?s greatest accomplishment is his family. He and his wife, Tracy, have been married for eight years and have three kids that keep them in shape and on their toes. Ryan is honored to serve as the Lead Pastor of Generations, and to help others know God's Word and do God?s work!
