Pastor Andy Robinson
Assistant Pastor/Children’s Director
Pastor Andy was raised in Cashmere. He and his lovely wife Mary are parents of three very intelligent children and have been foster parents for the last several years. They love the outdoors: identifying plants and rocks, photography, going for walks and camping. While Andy works at the office and in the community, Mary is being a Reading Specialist at Westside High School in Wenatchee. To get acquainted, see them after a morning service. They are behind the curtain operating all the controls for Kid Krazy, the Children's ministry of Christ Center.
"I help kids discover how much Jesus loves them and how they can have the love of Christ flow through them to others. Our team joins parents in directing their kids' patterns of thinking and living with the wisdom from above!" - Pastor Andy
Pastor Ian Ross
Director of Operations/Middle School Director
Ian Ross has been on our staff since the summer of 2017 but has been a pastor for almost 15 years. From Florida to Washington state, babies to grandparents, he has served churches in many different capacities. Most recently he served at Bethany Baptist Church in Puyallup, WA as the Young Adult and Jr. High Pastor.
Ian 's vision for life is to see the lost and hopeless find hope and healing through community and the local church. As the Director of Operations at Christ Center he believes he can improve the efficiency of our fellowship, allowing ministry to have more depth and purpose, through Christ. He also serves as the Middle School Pastor to 6-8th graders.
He is married to Emily Ross, the Principal at Peshastin-Dryden Elementary School. Ian and Emily have a daughter, Kyrianna, who goes to school at Osborn Elementary School, in Leavenworth. They love to be in the outdoors--fly-fishing, snowshoeing, and hiking.

Graduating from Cashmere High School in 1961 and Central Washington University with a BA in Art Education in 1968, I taught Middle School art in the Portland public school system for five years. Then for the next several years, I held a variety of positions in waitressing, sales, and then as the Credit Manager at the Portland Hilton Hotel. Ready for a major change, in 1979, I took a position with the US Forest Service in Portland. That is where I met my husband, Norm. I later transferred to work as a cartographer and serve as Visual Information Assistant on the Wenatchee National Forest Planning Team then later at the Entiat Ranger Station. In 1988 I heard God speak to me to become the secretary at Christ Center in Cashmere, where I still serve at this time.
