pastor ian gilchrist
I’ve been in full time teaching ministry for the last 10 years and I’m so excited to see a life-giving community with Biblical teaching and passionate worship in Fairview! I’m a graduate of the National Institute of Christian Leadership and received my Master’s degree in Ministry Leadership from Richmont Graduate University. I married the love of my life, Amanda, and have four amazing kids. My heart is to see our people understand who they are in Christ!
Executive Pastor of Congregational Care/Outreach
I moved to Nashville 25 years ago to pursue my dream of a music career. After performing professionally for 15 years, I received my Master’s Degree in Education from Lipscomb University in 2012 and was immediately offered a teaching position at Fairview Middle School. I taught middle school theatre from 2013-2020 and after receiving a Doctorate from Lipscomb University, accepted a position on this team as an Executive Pastor. My beautiful wife, Heather, and I, along with our two amazing kids, Sydni and Jordan, reside in Fairview. It is our desire to build Jesus loving disciples and serve all, with all that He has given us.
Executive Pastor of Ministries
I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, and lived there for the most part until 2011 when my wife, Faith, and I felt the tug to move to the greater Nashville area. We have not regretted it for a minute. Being in ministry for the better part of 23 years, I have had the opportunity to serve in various roles and in two different church plants along the way. Faith is a worship leader and a deep lover of people. I’m so fortunate to be able to do ministry shoulder to shoulder with her. It is my absolute honor to serve as we pursue Jesus and impact the greater Nashville area with the incredible love and hope filled message of Jesus Christ.
Executive Director of Music & Media
I am a Nashville transplant since 2011, originally pursuing a music career as a singer/songwriter, and most recently a career in music management for celebrities and entertainers. I have been a worship team volunteer from the age of 14, so my love of music stems from a love of worship at an early age. My husband, Josh, and I relocated to Fairview from Nashville at the end of 2020 with the prayer that we would find a local church to call home, and I am thrilled to say we have found that with this church and team! My passion is to continue developing a culture among our members that leads to life-altering connection with Him through worship!
I married my high school sweetheart, Jerry in early 1979 and now have three wonderful children and six beautiful grandchildren. We have called middle Tennessee home since 1990 and found our current home in Williamsport, TN in 2007. We currently operate Dayspring Farms, a 36 acre working farm, which not only produces organically grown food but also doubles as a discipleship program for many in the community. Professionally, I carry a background in human resources and finance on top of serving in administrative, hospitality and discipleship ministries over the last 30 years.
Students Director / Assistant to Executive Directors
I’ve been in ministry since 2014 and am passionate about the next generation, seeing families win, and building a bridge for families in this community as the Next Gen Director. My husband Thomas and I have one child and can often be found cheering on the Nashville Predators, watching College Football on Saturdays, and having dance parties in our kitchen!
