Eastminster Presbyterian


Hearts, Hands, Heads for Christ in Service and Celebration


Ryan Bradney


Ryan joins in the active ministry of Eastminster after nearly a decade as pastor with another wonderful congregation just outside of Lexington, KY.  While serving there, he also served as coach for Community Improv, whose mission is good improv for the good of the community.  That mission began in 2015 when Ryan and two deacons began sharing a weekly improv class with the residents of the Clark County Homeless Coalition. The class grew to a community-wide touring group of youth and adults working with schools, churches, and groups across the region.  Ryan has many stories of the healing, humor, and hope that was shared by the folks experiencing this form of improv.


Prior to living in Lexington, Ryan served for ten years in ministry with children, youth, and families including serving as youth minister in St. Louis, chaplain with a youth residential treatment center in Louisville, and as assistant program director with the Boys & Girls Club in iIllinois.


Ryan earned his Bachelors Degree from Illinois College and his Masters of Divinity from Louisvlle Presbyterian Theological Seminary.


He is married to Andrea and enjoys spending time outdoors with her and their two rescue pups.


He is excited to meet folks in Evansville, to hear their stories, and to join in what God is doing through Eastminster and the larger community.

Youth Director/Pastoral Assistant

Trey Fulkerson


Trey is a native of Evansville and has been a part of the Eastminster family his entire life.  After graduating from North High School in 2012, he officially united with Eastminster and was baptized in the faith.  Since Trey had spent many years involved in the Eastminster youth group and displayed great leadership skills, it seemed only natural that when the need arose in the fall of 2012 that he would become the part-time Youth Director. In September 2017 he became our full-time Youth Director/Pastoral Assistant.


Trey has studied French and German at the University of Southern Indiana and has visited friends in the Czech Republic several times. 


Trey is married to Annie Englebrecht Fulkerson.
