Ryan Schreckenghaust - Executive Pastor


My name is Ryan Schreckenghaust and I’m the Executive Pastor at The Summit Church. Lee’s Summit is my hometown and I love connecting with people to tell them about who Jesus is. 

I am a graduate of William Jewell College and, after changing my major countless times, felt God’s nudge to invest my life in the work of the local church. I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Psychology. I have worked at several churches over the last 18 years with the majority of my experience in Student Ministry and helping guide the creative process within the church. I’ve also worked professionally as a social media strategist in the marketing department at a Fortune 500 company. 

I’ve been married to my wife Rebekah for 17 years. Rebekah is a school counselor at a local elementary school. Together we have two boys, Jackson (12) and Camden (9). I love time with my family, reading and watching my favorite sports teams!
