Ryan McVicar

Ryan is the Lead Pastor at Red Tree Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor, MI. He grew up in central Illinois and became a Christian while in college at Murray State University. After college he married his best friend, Megan, who is from Hot Springs, Arkansas and a graduate of Rhodes College. Together they worked on staff with Campus Outreach to start two new college ministries in the Midwest.

Following their time in college ministry, they moved to Orlando, Florida where Ryan pursued theological training at Reformed Theological Seminary. In 2012, upon serving churches in Memphis and the Detroit area, Ryan, together with Megan and their three children (Nevin, Molly and Anna) moved to Royal Oak, MI to plant New City Presbyterian Church and to establish the Detroit Project, a ministry that exists to be a catalyst for a church planting movement throughout the Detroit region.

Ryan served as New City's Senior Pastor for ten years (2012 - 2022) and saw New City grow into a thriving, fruitful church. In 2022, the McVicar family was persuaded God was calling them to begin the privileged work of a new church start-up in Ann Arbor. The McVicar's are thrilled to be part of the Ann Arbor community and feel honored to serve the people of this great city.
