Ryne Ladley was born and raised in Memphis, but moved to Clarksville, TN in January of 2019 to pursue the Lord’s call on his life – for student and worship ministry. He felt the call to pursue worship leading early on in college at the University of Memphis. Not knowing what exactly that meant (or ever knowing how to play a musical instrument), he leaned on God, stepped out in faith, gave it his all, and has continued to follow where the Lord takes him. With that calling, he has been blessed to travel the country leading at various Retreats, DNOWs, Nights of Worship, camps like FUGE Camps, and leads at his church, Living Hope, while also leading in student ministry. Funny enough, he also met his wife, Meg, through helping lead student ministry in Clarksville! He and his band, Whosoever Worship, cannot wait to hear your stories of what God is doing in your life, and worship alongside you soon!
