Pink House Co-Director
Born in Los Angeles and raised in Fresno, CA, Ivan grew up in rough communities. He is intimately connected with the inner-city having been a school drop-out and gang-member. During a 5 year prison term, God called Ivan and his life took a radically different direction. He became the first in his family to graduate from a University, completing a double BA in Pre-Law & Religious Studies. In struggling to find a career and move out of the kind of neighborhoods he grew up in he felt God call him to remain.
Ivan currently serves as Program Co-Director of the Pink House and is now working on his Masters of Theology at Fresno Pacific Seminary. He and his beautiful wife Beth live in the Jefferson community of Fresno.
