Over the years, it’s been the intentional interpersonal relationships that have shaped the people that Ryan and Noella Olynyk have become the most. The two have been blessed with a marketplace ministry where they’ve been able to develop very intentional relationships with people, and not only that, but they’ve also been fortunate enough to be able to help those people in every area of their lives.

Ryan and Noella have worked incredibly hard to get to where they are today, but they know that all of that hard work would have been for naught if not for the relationships they developed along the way. They recognize that association is a very powerful factor in determining your success. It’s the people that you surround yourself with that ultimately decide how far you’ll go in life. Ryan and Noella have, therefore, actively sought out connections with people who want to work through their personal struggles and triumphs to become better from the inside out and then pay it forward.

That notion of paying it forward has really played an enormous role in both Ryan and Noella’s life and relationships. In everything they do and in every blessing they receive, they aim to make the world that much better—any way that they can. Because they’re both such giving people, they give back in a number of ways. They work closely with a number of charities in their communities, and they’re heavily involved in philanthropy wherever they can find opportunities.
