Ryan, known by all as Tarman, grew up at Wooddale and now has the privilege of pastoring the 5th and 6th grade ministry on the Eden Prairie Campus and The Student Ministry for 5th through 12th grade on the Edina Campus. Whether it’s the fun, energetic preteens or the authentic, relationship-driven teenagers, Tarman believes students are at a pivotal point in their faith to ask good questions and build true friendships.
When Tarman is not with his students or working on his Masters in Transformational Leadership, he always enjoys a good cup of coffee. He has tried coffee that has been grown all over the world including civet coffee (google it). Even though he has never played, football is his favorite sport. Go Boomer Sooner! He can be found wearing cowboy boots or flip flops and enjoys camping, frisbee golf and country music.
