About Ryan Sato

Rev. Dr. Ryan Sato is the senior minister at First Baptist Church Edmonton. A Canadian prairie-boy at heart, he ventured to California for graduate school and his first vocational ministry posting and then looped back to the prairies via Vancouver, B.C., where he picked up a little more education and church-land inspiration. He’s married to Sandy, has two younger boys and spends his time reading, driving his kids hither and yon, and dreaming of P90X.
