Ryan Mansbery

When did you join the staff and what is your position?

I joined the staff in February of 2005.  I am currently the Sound Technician on Sunday mornings and also assist with administration of the church’s website.

What is your favorite thing about working here?

My favorite thing about working at WUMC is all of the amazing people I have met and continue to see and serve beside each and every Sunday morning (and throughout the week).  This truly is a special place.

Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Summit, NJ and lived there until I was 10 years old.   I then moved to Durham, NC and was there until I graduated from C.E. Jordan High School.

Where did you go to school?

I attended C.E Jordan High School in Durham (Go Falcons!), UNC Wilmington (Go Seahawks!) earning a B.A. in General Music, Cum Laude, and then went on to Illinois State University where I earned a M.M. in Composition and Electronic Music (Go Redbirds!).

What drew you to this job?

What drew me to this job was my love of all things electronic and my desire to serve God and my neighbor through my gifts.
