Associate Pastor, Youth Ministry Coordinator
Ivan and his wife Pam started attending Locust Grove in the late 1990’s. With their two young children, they became involved in the Youth Ministry and in 2010, Ivan joined the staff as Associate Pastor. His role as Associate Pastor is deeply rooted in the youth program, which continues to grow as part of a congregation that is intentional about prioritizing ministry to children and youth.
Ivan enjoys the outdoors and being in nature, especially Fly fishing and Elk hunting. When unable to be on the water he enjoys the challenge of tying and creating his own trout flies. He and his wife love to travel together especially in the west where both their adult children now live.
