“It takes teamwork to make the dream work!” - John C. Maxwell

 

We agree strongly with John Maxwell who said, “It takes teamwork to make the dream work!” Below are intros to our amazing IPC staff team, shared here so that you can connect with them and know more about who we are. We believe that every member of IPC is a minister and the real heroes are the volunteers who give their time, talent, and energy to passionately serving others.

Lead Pastor

Chris Little

Hi, my name is Chris and I'm the Senior Pastor here at IPC. If anyone had told me as a young person that I'd end up as a pastor, I wouldn't have believed it.  But a huge heart for people and for God has brought me to a place of blessing, as I pastor a church full of loving, gracious followers of Jesus. Where my passion lies is simply sharing with anyone willing to listen the amazing, life changing message of Jesus. I'm a husband of a wonderful wife and the father of three great adult children. I love reading a good novel and being in the beauty of nature. Please say hi if you're ever at IPC.

Pastor of Communities

Joyce Vanderspek

Hey! I’m Joyce. Besides being a passionate follower of Jesus Christ; I’m a mom, a wife, a neighbour, friend, dairy farmer and a lover of the colour orange and shoes. My greatest achievement is being a mom to 3 incredible young people. I’ve been a pastor at IPC since January 2013 and currently enjoy providing pastoral care and doing outreach in downtown Woodstock. I love seeing people have “aha!!” moments where they experience God in new and profound ways. Sometimes life is really tough, I struggle daily with pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis but God meets me daily in my pain and weakness and shows me his love and care. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your story.

Office Administrator

Julia Holmes

Hi, I’m Julia and I’m the Office Administrator and Prayer Team Coordinator here at IPC. I am a nurse and professional organizer turned administrator. Connecting with people – answering email, phone calls and meeting people face to face in the church office is something I love to do. Drop in sometime for a chat! I enjoy spending time with my two adult children and have a passion for prayer, a good cup of tea,  quality milk chocolate and being in the outdoors.

Kid's Ministry Coordinator

Kristine Ferrier

Hi! My name is Kristine Ferrier, and I have the privilege of connecting with precious children, families, and leaders as the Children's Ministry Coordinator at IPC. As a mom of five kids and a certified teacher, it's easy to say that I am very passionate about kids and seeing them develop a special relationship with Jesus at a young age. At IPC, we think it is very important for kids to enjoy their time here, to learn about how much God loves them, and to help parents with their journey in raising their children into Christ followers. I am excited to meet you and your family as you embark on this journey. When I am not at church, you can find me spending time with my amazing husband and five children, running, baking, or drinking a good cup of tea and socializing!

Worship Pastor

Jeff Catto

Hi I'm Jeff! I am the Worship Pastor here at IPC.  When I am not leading worship, I love to spend time with my wife and six kids, eat nachos and I am a huge fan of golden retrievers specifically one named Sunny.  I look forward to worshipping together.

Youth Pastor

Stephen Owen

My name is Steve. I have three fantastic adult kids and two younger wonderful step-kids. I’m married to a gorgeous woman named Robyn, who you may also see from time-to-time involved in Worship at IPC. I love Jesus and have been following Him since I was eight. I’ve been involved in Youth for a lot years now, and it’s a huge passion in my life. I’m into road cycling, but can also be found riding trails/single-track on my mountain bike. I love coffee and milk chocolate and my favourite chocolate bar is 'Oh Henry’. I’m told I don’t drink nearly enough water. Wait, there’s water in coffee, right? Correction, I drink water regularly then. I’m a long time Apple user and fanboy. My favourite quote is, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” If I raise my left arm, you’ll read my life motto: I Am Second.
