PARKERSBURG — Redeemer will welcome two long-term Parkersburg natives on staff.

The Rev. Gregory Myers, who grew up in Lubeck and has served in ministry with the Priory of St. Patrick and Valley House of Prayer, will be the worship pastor.

Ryan Romine, who grew up in Vienna and has been part of the Mid-Ohio Valley all of his life, joins Redeemer as outreach pastor. The Romines served the Journey Church in Marietta, an Acts 29 church plant, since its beginning in 2012.

“After praying about and examining this opportunity with Ryan, we really feel as though this move best serves Christ’s kingdom,” Cody Parman, pastor of the Journey Church, said. “If it’s best for Christ’s Kingdom, then it’s also best for the Journey, Redeemer and Ryan’s family.”

Romine said he looks forward to serving the church and community at Redeemer.

“With a heart for the people of the MOV and a call to ministry, my wife, Sarah, and I anticipate the Lord growing His people through word and table worship,” Romine said.

The Rev. Jim Sallie, pastor of Redeemer, said the church is “moving into a new season of opportunity.

“Greg is an anointed worship leader as well as an experienced pastor. Ryan brings energy and creativity to the team,” he said. “As we bring our different gifts together, I believe the Lord will be magnified.”

Redeemer has services at 10:30 a.m. Sundays at 2210 Fairview Ave., Parkersburg. For more information, go to RedeemerPark.org.
