About Mike Ryherd


• I was adopted at the age of five months and grew up the younger of two boys. In 2010, my biological sister contacted me and revealed that I am actually the second of twelve siblings.

• My wife, Trish, and I have been married for 22 years and have three beautiful, incredible daughters. I am very proud of what people tell me about my wife and girls. I married waaaay up and I am fully aware of it!

• I am a Southpaw.

• I played quarterback in both high school and college.

• I am not afraid of snakes, cream corn, or yellow school buses…I just detest them all.

• I love Jesus. I love people.

• In 2011, I started a mentoring program for at-risk children in the Lewisville Independent School District called “Hangtime Lunch.”

• In 2012, I wrote a book entitled, 52 Lies Every Parent Should Tell Their Kids. The purpose of the book is to expose the lies our children face every day, and to give them practical teaching from God’s Word regarding these issues. It will be published soon.

• In 2013, I became senior pastor of Abiding Peace Community Church in Flower Mound, Texas. However, I choose to office at the Main Street Chick-fil-A in Lewisville.

• Best advice given: “Agree with what God says and not what you feel.”

• My favorite quote is from the Bible: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10). In other words, if you want to become wise, you must begin by respecting the Lord.
