About Pastor Ryan
Pastor Ryan Rippee grew up in Vallejo and moved back into the area in 2018 after ministering in churches in the North and East Bay for 18 years. Now living in Benicia, his heart is to serve this community with the love of Jesus Christ. Ryan and his wife Jennafer have raised 5 children and love spending time with their nieces and nephews and extended family here in Benicia. Ryan is currently the President of The Cornerstone Bible College and Seminary in Vallejo, CA. He received his B.A. degree from the University of California at Davis in History, his M.Div. from The Cornerstone Seminary, and his Ph.D. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with an emphasis in Biblical Spirituality and a minor in Church History. To unwind, Ryan loves teaching Brazilian Jui-Jitsu at New Creation Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu here in Benicia (it's more blessed to give chokes than receive them!).
