Fr. Ryan Higdon has received an extensive education beginning in 2007 after graduating with a BA in Philosophy and Letters from the University of Dallas. He then received his Masters in Divinity and a Masters in Theology through the University of St. Thomas in 2012 along with a Baccalaureate in Sacred Theology through the University of St. Mary’s.
He was ordained to the priesthood in 2012, following serving in the Army Reserves from 2009-2012. His involvement with Ablaze stems from the very first days as a priest at his first parish St. Joseph’s in Bryan, TX, working as a nearby priest and companion in ministry. He says that “I love working and partnering with Ablaze because of the passionate way they seek Christ as individuals, as a team, and for the Kingdom.” Fr. Ryan continues to work with Ablaze Ministries by not only being a member of the Board of Directors but also is the Pastor for St. Louis Catholic Church and School in Waco, TX who currently partners with Ablaze Youth.
