Ryan and Amanda Bush (far left) have worked as cross-cultural missionaries since 2005 in various capacities. Currently Ryan helps lead International Church Planters, a mission team located in Arkansas. ICP's mission is to serve as scaffolding to pastors and church planters in areas around the world where the church is growing, but training for leadership is scarce. You can read more about ICP's work here.
Before coming to Arkansas Ryan and Amanda served as church planting missionaries to various diaspora groups in Memphis, such as Latinos, West African, Middle-Easterners, and Vietnamese. They developed and implemented evangelism and church-planting strategies, and led teams to engage these groups.
Ryan and Amanda have four kids ages 2 to 9 years. They strive to be a family that demonstrates the love Christ through acts of kindness and teaches the gospel to those who don't know Christ. Ryan received his PhD in Missiology from Mid-America Theological Seminary in Memphis, TN.
