Skip Ryan Testimony

Three years ago, Dr. Skip Ryan stepped down from being senior pastor of Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas. On Sunday, a friend alerted me to a testimony that Dr. Ryan shared last summer at the 37th General Assembly of the PCA in Orlando, Florida.

I’m most encouraged to hear that Dr. Ryan remains an active member of the church he once led. That in itself is a testimony of grace. Currently Dr. Ryan serves as Chancellor and Professor of Practical Theology at Redeemer Seminary in Dallas, Texas. I think this is worth a listen.

Dr. Skip Ryan was my pastor for about a year and a half when I was a student at Dallas Theological Seminary.

    Courageous, authentic and convicting.

    This is one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. A refreshing,helpful,hopeful admonition to my soul…”Where do you expect me to go. This is my family. These are my people”. This is the fruit of applying Galatians 6:1-2. Thank you for making this available. Merry Christmas Denny.

    I’m just curious, Dr. Burk, when did your convictions change from a Presbyterian ecclesiology to a Baptist? What changed your views?

    Actually, I was sojourning as a Baptist among Presbyterians. I was never a paedo-baptist.

    I was in seminary when I went to PCPC, and I never became a full-member. I had an associate member status so that I could retain my membership in my home church in Louisiana.
