Why Salt Lake City?

Salt Lake County is marked by equal parts beauty and darkness. Home to stunning mountain views, world-class recreation, and a booming business and tech industry, but is also in great need of Jesus.

The fifth fastest-growing city in the U.S., Salt Lake City has over 2 million people living in the metro area and is projected to double in coming years. Sadly, less than 3% of the population professes a life-changing, eternity-altering relationship with Jesus Christ. Salt Lake City is a vibrant, growing city in need of an ever-growing gospel-presence.


Our Story


Ryan and Tami met in 2001 while working at Starbucks together. They married in 2005 and now have three children: Ava, Ryder, and Lincoln, as well as a dog named Wicket (obviously named after the most famous Ewok from Return of the Jedi).

After serving as a worship pastor for three years, Ryan and Tami planted Redemption Bible Church in 2009 in the suburbs of Chicago, where they served for seven years. In 2016, they packed up and moved to Hickory, NC where Ryan became the Senior Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel. After fifteen months of service, the church had grown by over 300 people and Ryan and Tami began to sense a call to plant again.

In the fall of 2017, the Huguleys arrive in Salte Lake and immediately got to work planting Ridgeline Church in Salt Lake County. We have several families who either have or are in the process of relocating to this area from around the country, and we plan to launch on Easter Sunday!
