“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.
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.
Hi, I’m Julia and I’m the Office Administrator 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
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!
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.
