Riyan Littlefield serves as the Student Ministries Director at Ridgewood Baptist church. He and his wife Sharayah began serving at Ridgewood in early 2012. Prior to that, they both attended and graduated from Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL with degrees in Youth Ministry. Riyan is currently continuing his education and working toward his Masters of Theology from Trinity’s graduate school.
Riyan grew up in New Jersey not far from the Atlantic Ocean and just across the bay from New York but has spent most of his life in the Midwest. In addition to being a published author, Riyan is an avid gamer, reader, and movie-goer, constantly immersing himself in today’s media culture in order to better understand the students he serves.
Riyan and Sharayah live in Waukesha with three cats, Lalie, Leo, and Alistair, and are expecting their first child late this summer.
