"As each person has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's grace. Who ever speaks,
as one who speaks the message of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies, in order
that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
- 1 Peter 4:10-11
Ryan has been on staff at CCC since 2016, when he moved to Round Rock with his wife, Janie, and daughters Abigail and Kaitlyn to serve as Student Minister. Ryan as a Bachelor's Degree in Christian Ministry from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and an MA in Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He's served in several churches in the Dallas and central Texas areas.
Ryan enjoys teaching the Bible, running, playing guitar, and spending time with his family. The Trask's are expecting the birth of their third child, Eleanor, in April 2017. Ryan loves being a "girl dad" and enjoys teaching his daughters an appreciation of super heroes.
"I truly believe that students aren't just the future of the church, they are the 'now' of the church. We don't want student ministry to be a holding tank for teens that releases them upon graduation unprepared to follow Christ. I want to equip students to love and passionately follow Jesus right now and into adulthood."
Benjamin has been on staff at CCC since 2015, and graduated in the same year with a BS in Worship Arts. He moved to Texas from Michigan in 2011, and to Round Rock in 2015.
Benjamin enjoys educating about worship, and worshiping in many different forms, listening to many kinds of music, especially live, playing piano, reading, and storytelling in any media.
“Worship should be our response to God for what He has done for us. The form of worship, or what we specifically do is not nearly as important as who we are worshiping. Worship can be singing, or playing and instrument. Worship can just as easily be raking leaves, having a meeting, talking to someone, or even working at your job. Worship can be done alone between just you and God, or done with other people. The important fact of worship is not what you are doing but who you are worshiping. God created all people, and allows us to be in relationship with Him. Because of these things we respond to Him in thankfulness for what he has done.”Send Benjamin an Email
