My name is Clay Ryan. I am a Financial Advisor living in Fort Worth, TX. I was born and raised in El Paso, and lived there until my wife and I moved to Fort Worth in 2002. While still living in El Paso, I knew of Casas por Cristo through church and from stories of people I met who had been on a build. It wasn’t until I met Pete Dockery (former Guatemala Field Director) in 2001 and became friends with him that I truly began to understand and appreciate all that Casas did. In 2011, Pete told me about Casas expanding into Guatemala. God laid it on my heart to organize a trip and I have been on a build in Guatemala every year since. My passion for seeing the ministry continue to grow and reach more lives led me to serve on the board. My favorite thing about the ministry is the relationships we have with the local pastors in each of our locations.
