I’M A PASTOR, CEO, AND ENTREPRENEUR.
I’m a pastor at heart. I’m also the CEO of KidzMatter, a publishing company that serves church leaders, and the Creator of 12 Stone Ventures, a consulting and real-estate company.
WHAT I DO
I'm Ryan. My best friend is my wife, Beth. Together, we created KidzMatter while serving on staff at our church. We publish KidzMatter Magazine, one of today's leading ministry magazines. We also publish books, curriculum, lead events, do a lot of speaking, and other super fun stuff.
I’m a partner in a real estate firm that offers multi-family housing complexes and I also have interests in a few other companies.
My alma mater is Indiana Wesleyan University, where I currently serve on the Board of Trustees.
Our day-to-day work is great, but home is where our hearts are. Our most important disciples are our three girls - Luci, Londyn, and Lily.

EAT THE FROG FIRST
Eat the Frog First is Ryan Frank’s newest book on leadership in kidmin. Planning and prioritizing is a huge problem for all of us. Imagine a day without unnecessary meetings, distractions, Facebook notifications, texts, and checking emails every minute of the day. Sounds impossible, doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
10 SENTENCES TO REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR MINISTRY
Over the course of this book you will be introduced to ten prayers. They all begin with “Lord help me…” because the success of your ministry hinges upon God’s blessing and the Holy Spirit’s power upon what you do. This book will remind you that there are 10 important areas in which we desperately need God’s help… and when He empowers us in these 10 areas, our lives and ministries are forever transformed.
THE VOLUNTEER CODE
I’m convinced that your ministry will live or die based on your ability to recruit and keep amazing volunteers. As a pastor and ministry coach, I know that volunteers are the lifeblood of any ministry. In this book, I share 10 laws to help you crack the volunteer code and have a breakthrough like never before.
