About Bishop Ivan

Ivan is the founder & overseer of Faith Covenant Fellowship Ministries. As overseer, he is responsible for casting vision, spiritual direction, financial oversight, and leadership development. In his role as pastor, he shepherds the flock of God by leading the weekly ministry of preaching, teaching, and prayer. He also has extensive experience as an information technology and business consultant. As an adjunct professor, he has taught theology at the undergraduate level, along with graduate level leadership and business courses.

Through a life of holy pursuit, prayer, and fasting, Ivan positions himself to walk in the yoke-destroying, burden-removing power of God.  He is an anointed vessel through which God’s mighty power manifests, as he ministers deliverance to those who are bound by the powers of darkness.  Many have been healed and delivered from spiritual, emotional and physical infirmities. As a pastor of pastors, he operates with humility and a fatherly wisdom that has cultivated and launched others into ministry.  Through passionate, prophetic preaching and transparent teaching, the Word of God is producing supernatural results.  His commitment to living and declaring the word of God continues to transform lives.
