The Drummers are true "Northeners". Marcus is from Indiana and Lindsey is out of Ohio. They met in Muncie, IN and have been happily married since 2018.  They are now the parents to two sweet boys, Myles and August. Early in their marriage, Marcus enlisted with the Army and served for serveral years. His position brought him and his family to Columbia, SC. It was here where they connected with Aphesis Church.

They are passionate about sharing the message of the Gospel to the youth. They felt the call to support the vision and mission of Aphesis Church and are looking forward to what God will do next within the lives of our young people.

Ryan & Julianne

Children's Ministry Pastor

Ryan and Julianne's story began in high school.  When you look up the meaning of "High School Sweethearts", you'll find the Butlers! Shortly after high school, Ryan enlisted into the Air Force and married his sweetheart.  With their children, Talan and Olivia, they have been stationed in Florida, North Carolina, Okinawa, and now the Columbia, SC area.

During their time in Okinawa, Ryan felt the call and burden to work with young people.  As willing vessels, God has opened doors for them to serve on the Aphesis Church ministry team.  They have a deep passion for children, young people, for pet dogs, and for delicious barbecue!
