Welcome to Big Lake Campmeeting Association
Ryan Carle, Evangelist
Ryan Carle was born and raised in New England. His mother Noelle introduced him to Jesus at a young age. The Carles moved to New Zealand when Ryan was in his teens and his father Russell began to work there as a church planter. In 1998, Ryan returned to the United States after High School graduation. After some soul-searching and missteps, he enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1999 and was eventually stationed in Japan where he met his soulmate Crystal, who was stationed at the same base. They were married in 2001 in the small country church in South Carolina, where Crystal grew up. After their military service was completed in 2003, Ryan and Crystal moved to Columbia, South Carolina to attend college at Columbia International University. They had three girls (Gracen, Zoe, and Naomi) and moved to Texas in 2008 where Ryan completed a Master's degree in Apologetics and Crystal studied emergency medicine. Currently, Ryan works as an Area Field Manager for UHaul. Ryan serves as Pastor and Crystal serves in many other capacities at Open Door Church in Van Alstyne, Texas where they strive to find riches in Christ Jesus and lead others to do the same.
