Who is this guy


 

Who is this guy?

Hi.  I'm Alan Pastian.  I am the spontaneous husband to my wife Heidi, zany father to Anja and Magnus, I think coffee and community are inseparable, I believe that a picture speaks a thousand words, I celebrate films as modern-day parables and I know that collecting experiences is more valuable than collecting things.

My bio


I have the privilege of being a next generation leader working with youth and young adults exclusively for over 18 years and have absolutely loved it.   After finding Christ in the university setting my senior year of college, I began my journey as a leader of youth and young adults in the local church.  In addition to working with Rob Ketterling, the incredible team at River Valley Church overseeing our multi-site youth ministry and it's youth pastors for many years, I also have had the honor of working with Mark Batterson at National Community Church as part of the Campus Pastor team and value their continued mentorship in my life.   I  currently have the extreme privilege of working at Desert Springs Church as the Young Adults and Creative Pastor with Brad Davis, the man who led me to Christ over 20 years ago, where I oversee all things creative and get to lead an incredible group of young adults in the Phoenix area.  I also own a design company called The Eikon Collaboration where I bring other people's creative ideas to life.  So if you are interested in leadership, creativity and inspiring the next generation then you are in the right place.
