Ryan and Heather Gluth have been doing youth ministry in Alaska since there were married in 1997, when they first arrived in Sitka to be youth interns. Since then, they have been youth Pastors in Juneau, Kenai, and have served in various capacities at churches around the state. Prior to taking the role of Youth Director, Ryan served as Fine Arts Director and Assistant Youth Director for the two previous youth directors.  Ryan has been serving in the role of Network Youth Director since August of 2014.

They have a passion for worship and to pour into students and leaders across Alaska. Ryan, Heather, and their 4 kids live in Sitka where they have served as Lead Pastors since February 2012. They continue to serve in both capacities but Ryan is still available to serve you and your church as you reach students. Reach out to him if you'd like him to come speak, if you need resources, ideas or if he can serve you in anyway.
