Meet Our Pastor

12Hello! The fine folks at Soldier Creek know me as Brother Ryan. As you can see from the pic I have amazing kiddos and a wife way out of my league! I had the privilege of coming on staff as Pastor at Soldier Creek in June 2013. My greatest passion is to preach God’s Word and to do so with great enthusiasm so that people will give glory to God and worship Him alone. I am intoxicated with the glory and fame of Jesus Christ. He is a good and sovereign King, but He is the farthest thing from boring!
I am a text-driven preacher which means I believe in the authority of the inspired biblical text and I allow Scripture to frame the substance of the sermon. My preaching is all about letting the Word speak for Itself and allowing the immensity of the Gospel to shine through to reach and change the hearts of others.
I have obtained three graduate degrees in theology from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary—Ph.D. in Systematic Theology/Preaching (2017), a ThM/Master of Theology (2009), and a MDIVBL/Master of Divinity with Biblical Languages (2004). I love the Early Church or Patristic theologians so I wrote my dissertation on the Church Father Irenaeus. My dissertation is titled “The Knowability of the Father in the Theology of Irenaeus.” I am a teaching preacher and I challenge our people to deep theological reflection every week. I also have the privilege of teaching Systematic Theology at the Southwestern Seminary Extension at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee. I integrate a lot of that theological reflection into my preaching; you will be spiritually fed and challenged!
Most importantly, I can tell you that Soldier Creek is full of the Holy Spirit, and we have a great time exalting the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! We are passionate about the renown of the Son of the Father, Jesus Christ our Lord! Also, we are extremely passionate about discipling and strengthening young families. In fact, you could encapsulate our whole methodology at Soldier Creek with the term disciple-making. We love babies, families, children & youth, singles young/old alike, and folks from all walks of life and backgrounds. We also have a fervent desire to get into our community and love/serve others. Come worship with us or meet with us at one of our small groups that we like to call CG’s (Converge Groups). I hope to meet you this Sunday and if there is anything that the staff or I can do for you please do not hesitate to contact us—it would be a great honor to pray for you. Come join us in the journey to make JESUS famous! See you soon! #MakingJesusFamous   #ReachOKC
For the Fame of Jesus,
Ryan Allan Redwine
