LEAD PASTOR– Ryan Scott Carrell
Ryan is the Lead Pastor and Founder of The Southeast Project. Ryan and Jill, who also is a leader at Southeast and serves as our Southeast Kids director, have two daughters, Emily and Margaret. Emily attends Bunker Hill Elementary and Margaret is in preschool.
Having graduated from Franklin Central High School in 1998, starting Southeast was all about coming home to Franklin Township in Indianapolis. The Carrell family loves living in Indianapolis and you will often find them at school happenings, Pacers games, the zoo, the children’s museum, and community events. You will definitely find them at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the month of May.
Ryan’s desire is to create a place where people who feel disconnected from faith can belong. Ryan loves to peel back the layers of scripture and dig into the history, context, and language. Rather than avoid asking hard questions of the Bible, Ryan loves to lean into them. His biggest joy is when people discover that God’s desire for their lives is to bring good to our world and make a real difference in the community.
Ryan has a blog at www.ryanscottcarrell.com. There you will find sermons in written form, new ideas, upcoming projects, and occasional musings about our world.
