Our Pastor



Pastor Ryan

Pastor Ryan Radtke is a graduate of Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA.  He grew up in Wisconsin and still has a lot of family in that neck of the woods.  He is married to Pastor Liz Radtke, and they have three children.  Pastor Ryan has served in congregations in Minnesota and California before coming to Virginia.  He has a passion for imagining new ways to understand and share the gospel.  He loves teaching Bible studies and confirmation and learning from the folks around him.  He wants to invite people into a deeper conversation about what God is up to right now – whether those people are new to church and the Bible and faith-type stuff, or they’ve been in the middle of this their whole lives.  Pastor Ryan loves the Lutheran dialect to the language of faith, especially the teaching that we are freed from/freed for (ask him more about that one).  Pastor Ryan has a really dry sense of humor, so it’s a good thing Martin Luther wants us to remember our baptisms every single day.

His email address is:  messiahmechpr@gmail.com if you need to get in touch with him.
