Senior Pastor: Dean Landry

Dean Landry and his wife Kendra came to us in 2014, after nearly seventeen years of ministry in northern Michigan. Dean grew up in Rhode Island and became a Christian while serving in the Marine Corps.

Following his enlistment, Dean completed a Bachelor's from Clarks Summit University and grad degrees from Bethel College and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.

Dean loves reading, talking, sightseeing and hanging out with his wife, kids and grand-kids. Dean’s greatest passion lies particularly in teaching God’s Word.

Associate Pastor: Clifford Gehret

Cliff Gehret has been happily married to Courtney Gehret, the love of his life, since 2008. They now have three children, Johannah, Ezekiel and Silas. Cliff grew up in Telford, attending—the old—Souderton High School

He went to Eastern University and received a B.A. in Secondary Education and a B.A. in English in 2008. He then pursued and completed a M.Ed. in Multicultural Education from Eastern by 2011. While the teaching profession afforded Cliff a clear vocational pathway, he was always drawn to ministry. That calling led him to Indian Valley Faith Fellowship in 2011.

So, his first graduate degree concluded, he embarked on acquiring an M.DIV. from Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, which ended by the spring of 2014. He finished pursuing education once he completed his D.Min. in practical ministry in December of 2016. Besides taking classes and spending time with family, Cliff enjoys playing soccer as well as writing articles. Above all, however, his passion is to build the kingdom of God by bringing people into contact with Jesus, God’s Son.

Children’s Ministry Coordinator: Penni Scott

Penni originates from the western part of the state, but grew up locally and believes eastern Pennsylvania can’t be beat! Her favorite pastimes are hiking and camping with her family, as well as traveling, cooking and reading (preferably on the beach).

Penni came to a saving knowledge of her Lord and Savior Jesus in 2001 and immediately began working with children and youth. She has attended IVFF since 2008.

In 2013 Penni moved from volunteering in the children’s ministries, to overseeing them. Her passion to see all children come to an understanding of who they are in Christ, and obtain a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, motivates her to seek excellence in every area of the children’s ministries.
