About Me Image

Hi, I’m Ryan. Thanks for joining me on this journey as I help great visionaries lead with strategy. I believe that the local church has the potential to make the greatest impact in our world. And I believe that impact is greatest when leaders narrow their focus, set clear priorities, and guide their teams toward intentional action. That’s what Leading with Strategy is all about.

I’ve been privileged to serve in leadership with a couple great churches. Most recently, I served as Director of Expansion for NewPointe Community Church, a six campus church in Northeast Ohio. There, I focused on the launch and continued development of new campuses. I’ve personally experienced the challenges and opportunities that exist within multisite ministry and planting churches in new areas.

Prior to that, I served as the Strategic Analyst for Mount Paran Church, a church with a great legacy of reaching Atlanta, Georgia. There, I guided the team through a strategic change initiative to redevelop the mission, values, strategy, and program structure. I know what it’s like to lead change within a large church that has a hundred year history of success.

Currently, I serve with The Unstuck Group, a consulting organization led by Tony Morgan. We help churches grow their impact through church consulting and coaching experiences designed to focus vision, strategy, and action. To put it simply, we help churches get unstuck.

With Tony Morgan, I co-authored Vital Signs: Meaningful Metrics That Keep a Pulse on Your Church’s Health. I write regularly on strategic leadership within church ministry at and I’ve also had articles featured by organizations such as Outreach MagazineOrange Leaders, and

I have a Master of Business Administration from Kennesaw State University and degrees in business administration and discipleship ministry from Lee University. I’m passionate about the use of business principles for strategic change within the local church.

My wife Emily and I reside in North Canton, Ohio. I love connecting with other leaders. Please don’t hesitate to send me an email at ryan.stigile@ or DM me on Twitter at @ryanstigile.
