Rev. Ryan Schaeffer

Hey! I’m Rev. Ryan Schaeffer, and I am the pastor of Fieldstone UMC. I was appointed to Fieldstone in July 2018 and have enjoyed becoming apart of this wonderful community.

I graduated from Longwood University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and earned my Master of Divinity from Eastern Mennonite Seminary in 2014. Currently I am a Provisional Elder in the United Methodist Church working toward Ordination.

As a pastor, I love teaching bible studies and leading worship. I especially love celebrating communion and baptisms and as they strengthen our connection to one another and Christ.  As a lifelong Methodist, I truly love the connection that is found in the United Methodist Church.  Having served as a UMC pastor for nearly ten years, I have enjoyed time at all the appointments I have served.  Getting to know different communities is one of the perks of the UMC itineracy process. 

My beautiful wife, Erin, and I have been married for ten years. We have two rambunctious daughters, Maggie and Mariah, ages 2 and 5 respectively.  We enjoy spending time together and with our extended families who reside in Northern Virginia and Richmond, VA.  We have two dogs, Kodiac and Zoey, and one cat, Charlie.  I am huge hockey fan, and you can catch me watching the Washington Capitals as often as possible! 

What is a methodist?

Fieldstone is a United Methodist Church.  

It all started when John Wesley, the guy to your right, started taking God seriously. Click on this old school claymation video to get a quick history. Yes, we said claymation.
