Iris joined our pastoral staff in 2012 as our Children’s Pastor. Her hope is that every child who walks through our door would know that they are special, a creation of God, loved and valued by Him and His people. Her love and passion for children has led to more than 30 years of experience with children and their families, focusing most of her attention on children’s programs at local schools and with various community programs, as well as within her church. Iris and her husband, Gus, live in Chicago and love any opportunity to host a party and celebrate life with their family and friends. Iris and Gus are proud parents to two incredible young adult sons and one amazing daughter-in-law.
