Because we know that it helps to know more about your contractor, below are some events, projects and causes that Jim Ryerson and his company have been involved with:
Jim is a member and Elder at Westminster. You can even catch him playing bass in the worship team from time to time. Though being a member of a church family is important, having a relationship with our Risen, Ruling and Reigning Savior, Jesus Christ is MOST important. Worshipping and fellowshipping with others who are like-minded on Sundays and during the week at Life Groups is just an added and beneficial bonus!
The Palmer Home campus was damaged by hail in 2012. After the high deductible for the ministry, enough money was left to purchase materials for the re-roofing of the buildings on campus. Over the years, churches had sent work crews to re-roof the smaller buildings, leaving one building undone because of its size. The Brotherhood Cottage roof was 77.5 SQ (about three times the size of an average residential roof). It needed a professional crew to do the work, but monies were not available to hire a contractor for the job. Jim Ryerson saw this as a ministry opportunity, raised the money and gathered the crew to get the job done! The Westminster Presbyterian Church Deaconate, a private donor and the generous support of The High Cotton Classic provided the labor costs to empower a trusted, local Rock Hill roofing crew to travel to Columbus, MS under the direction of Jim Ryerson and re-roof Brotherhood Cottage on the Palmer Home Campus. All materials were provided by Palmer Home; all labor costs provided by donors. Jim and several members of Westminster worked alongside the crew to accomplish the task. The roof was replaced in less than a week. [View Photo Gallery]
Jim Ryerson is thankful to be one of many “Point Persons” from Westminster Presbyterian Church who helps to lead community workdays at Richmond Drive. The goal is to invest in the local community of Catawba Terrace and Richmond Drive Elementary directly behind the Westminster campus in Rock Hill in order to better our world by following Jesus into the community.

Spartan Sprint (2014 and 2015)
What a great way to fellowship with Christian brothers, to challenge physical abilities and have a good time. Jim and three other friends conquered these challenging courses as well as a few Marine Runs over the past several years! [View Photo Gallery]
Rolling in Rock Hill provides a wonderful opportunity for city government, churches, businesses, civic organizations, and citizens to work together to make Rock Hill a great place to live. Hundreds of volunteers work in teams to paint the houses of those who are either physically or financially unable to do it themselves. This event, organized and funded by the City of Rock Hill is an awesome way for the public to reach into the community and literally change the world, one house and one family at a time. Jim and Ryerson Brothers Construction have helped to lead painting crews from Westminster Presbyterian Church over the past three years as part of this program. [View Photo Gallery]
