Ryan Gordon

Hello! My name is Ryan Gordon. I am a graduate of Outreach Ministries of Alabama. Before I entered OMA I had been living a life of drug addiction for 11 years. After years of battling and trying everything to fulfill my brokenness and emptiness, I came to such a dark place where I had lost hope in everything and in everyone. I would wake up every morning and would rather die than have to go through another day. I hated who I had become and the things I was doing. I wanted to quit but I couldn’t, I had no control over my life. I was powerless.

Through the years people had told me about God, especially my parents, so I knew of Him but I didn’t KNOW Him. I cried out to Him numerous times during my journey and He brought me to a place where I had nothing else to run to but Him. I finally came to a place of surrender, I was done running and fighting.

That is when I made the decision to go to OMA. I had opportunities before to make that move but I was not ready to commit to the sacrifice of that choice. But when God brought me to that place where I was so tired of fighting it brought so much peace and freedom in my life. I came to find more joy in OMA than I had ever had in my life before. I started to get to know Jesus and who He is. I started to experience Him for the first time for myself and I was sold out. There was no turning back!

I found life, fulfillment, purpose, relationship, and most of all, love. In the world, I didn’t think I would ever experience freedom. I thought my life was over and that I would have to deal with what I had done to myself for the rest of my life. I didn’t think I would ever have the things that I truly desired in life. Things like a wife, children, and people that really cared about me.

BUT GOD…

Now that I am eight years into following the Lord, I can honestly say that it has been so rewarding! Not always easy, but rewarding nonetheless. There is nowhere else I would rather be. I have now been married for four years to my beautiful wife, Abigail. We have a gorgeous two-year-old, Alizah, who is the most fun and loving little girl you will ever meet. God has truly been SO good to me. He has fulfilled the desires of my heart even when I didn’t think I was deserving of it.

My wife and I both have very successful and growing businesses and we get to minister and bless others through our businesses. God has also blessed us with some amazing relationships in our lives as well. It has been a huge blessing to serve the Lord.

Remember that no matter how hard it gets, no matter the trials that come, God is there with a blessing around every corner if you look to Him for help. It has been a process and a journey but every hard season that has come, He has always come through. He is so faithful! I have been saved by grace through my faith in Him, through believing in Him, I am now a redeemed child of God.
