Join Our Team!

There are jobs and then there are callings. Callings that allow you to do the kind of work that adds up to something meaningful with the opportunity to challenge yourself and grow in your faith alongside others. Callings that give the prospect of working with excited, passionate and motivated people. Callings that allow you to work together to grow God’s Kingdom through Active Discipleship.

Ivanrest Church started in 1926 as an evangelistic chapel in Grandville. Over the years God had bigger plans for Ivanrest, leading to the relocation south on Ivanrest Ave to our current building in 1966. Over the years the building expanded and evolved to provide opportunities to connect with our surrounding community. Most recently, a major church REFRESH project was completed in 2019 to facilitate more connection opportunities. We have a strong footing in Grandville and the surrounding area. Ivanrest Church is small enough to know people by name but big enough to offer a wide variety of programs and connection points for both families and singles who attend. Just check out our weekly calendar to see the various ways children, students, adults, and families both serve and grow together.
