Ivan, his wife, Ann, and their children—Chet, Hannah, and Isaiah—relocated to the area seven years ago from Montana. Prior to that they were active members at Grace Evangelical Covenant Church in Chicago, IL, while Ann was pursuing her M.Div. at North Park Theological Seminary. Ivan and Ann have been creatively enabling people to confidently pursue the mission to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” While in Montana, they ran a food relief ministry, and are excited about what that might look like in the Seattle area. Ivan seeks truth, for himself, our church, our community and our denomination; he is reminded, with every breath, of how much grace he receives and is determined to ensure that grace is extended to others. Ivan is honored to serve at Pine Lake, whether it’s running to raise money for clean water, cooking meals for those in need, or serving on the Leadership Team.
