Mike Wasyluk

Interim Pastor

My journey in ministry began at the age of 18 when I was attending Emmanuel Bible College and was asked by a pre-launch church plant to form a youth ministry. Since then, I have been serving churches and connecting people young and old to Jesus Christ. I am the father of Waverley and Renleigh, husband to Lauren, and a passionate hockey fan. When I'm not working, you might find me playing at the park with the girls, watching reruns of The West Wing, or making sure my garden edges look just right.

Kristine Ferrier

Kids 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 six 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 six children, running, baking, or drinking a good cup of tea and socializing!

Stephen Owen

Youth Pastor

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.

Dana Lynne Endersby

Bookkeeper

I am Dana Lynne Endersby, the Bookkeeper at IPC. I like to consider myself one part scientist and one part detective.  I spent the early part of my career doing bookkeeping before transitioning to mission work, then teaching and then children’s ministry. After a few decades, I have come full circle - back to bookkeeping!  The best part of what I do? I support IPC’s mission by providing financial records with integrity and clarity. A true bookworm in every way, I enjoy spending time reading about cooking, household organizing and cleaning and spend far less time doing any of those things.  My family, consisting of my husband John and our four teens, always manages to find my reading hideaways.
