Pastor Ryan and his wife Ellie Binkley are founding lead pastors at Create Church and began in ministry soon after they got married in 1999, at Victory World Church in Norcross, Georgia as the Directors of the Metro Atlanta Masters Commission. A few years later they moved back to the Dallas metroplex and began working again in the business community and serving as young adult pastor at Covenant Church of Carrollton, Texas.

Ryan and Ellie have served in dual roles as business leaders and ministry leaders in the community and in their local church the past ten years. From 2009 until this year, they served as elders and pastors of Covenant Church’s College and Career Ministry where they had a thriving service for the young adults in the North Dallas area. In the meantime, their family also grew and they now have five children.

Ryan and Ellie have a unique background in their life in business and ministry that relates to many people as they discover their calling and purpose. It is their life’s purpose to see people find their creative purpose in God and be all that they were “Created” to be in Christ.
