Ryan was born in Easton, PA in 1974 and adopted shortly thereafter by the Zarbatany family. He stumbled through life without knowing God. Never praying or attending church. Knowing that there was some God out there but not having any relationship with him. Lacking direction and lost in the wilderness. Focused on fun, money, good times and being popular and cool. But God knew Ryan well! Ryan went to various schools including Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI. Ryan was married at 25 in 1999 and is father to 3 children, Samantha, Robbie and Tyler. Also in 1999 the Ryan finally had a real encounter with God. Ryan gave his life to Christ. Ryan dared God to act! Looking for a new place to live Ryan made a phone call to a number he found on the door of a convenient store late Saturday night in March of 1999. Laughingly exclaiming that if there was an answer it had to be a “God thing” and he would go to church Sunday morning. God heard him and responded by not only having the phone answered but providing a new home for Ryan and his wife. For some reason he decided to follow through with his promise and went to Mill Creek Baptist Church in Radcliff KY the fateful Sunday. Ryan was moved to tears however during the altar call he never left his pew. Going outside and getting in his car he paused and felt, knowingly, for the first time God’s presence. He exclaimed that they could not leave or he feared they would die. Going back in the church and finding the pastor, Jim Shaw, that day he was leads to Christ. In tears on his knees he gave his life to Christ.
As with many new Christians Ryan didn’t give all his life to Christ right away. But God never gave up on him, even though he went down a dark path and even got divorced. Ryan tried to follow Gods calling but also made selfish choices and partied and drank and after the divorce tried to find comfort, anyway he could. Life was all about easy highs and fun.
In 2007 Ryan, then 33, hit rock bottom. With an almost empty gas tank and only a few dollars left he traveled from his home in southern Indiana back to Pennsylvania where he was born to his Fathers house. It was time for another encounter with God. After moving into the YMCA a friend showed him to a new church Living Water in Allentown, PA. There he met Pastor Rick Tunis and after consulting God on Ryan’s first day of church he was asked to sit in on drums for the worship team. Through Pastor Ricks’ guidance, love, faith, forgiveness and mentorship Ryan learned how to develop his relationship with God. He became a more active member in church and played music on the worship team. Started reading the bible and praying. No more drinking or smoking. He learned how to serve others before himself. How to serve God.
In 2010 Ryan moved to Lima, NY to attend Elim Bible College. Ryan felt a calling to learn more and study the word. Pastor Rick introduced Ryan to Elim as a former graduate himself. After only a short time he was hired as the food service director and head chef of the college. He also served as the Worship Pastor at the GO Christian Center in Churchville, NY. He poured his heart and life into the kids at Elim for almost 4 years-- until he had a new calling in Syracuse, NY.
Ryan met his new wife in Syracuse in 2014 and was married in 2015, to Laurie Ann Allen-Zarbatany. Along with the marriage came 3 step-kids: Nico, Joseph and Lillian.
He was then called as the worship leader for Summit Church in Cazenovia, NY under Pastor Dan Schallmo. After serving at Summit Ryan’s next chapter would be writing scores of Christian songs, when he stopped leading worship and got poured into again he found that almost every Sunday at church God was giving him a new song. He would take careful notes and leave the service with multiple verses and a chorus and bridge. Over and over again while sitting at the Orchard Church in Liverpool, NY (while listening to Pastor Justin Campbell) God spoke songs into Ryan’s heart. It was time to go to the studio and record and release the music that God had been inspiring throughout his life. The release of Ryan’s first album “Bucket of Grace” reflects a lifetime of renewal, rebirth and transformation.
