Helping people ignite and grow their passion for Jesus
MEET OUR STAFF
Mike Fabian - Lead Pastor
Mike has a passion for serving others and helping people connect God's word to everyday life. Mike and his wife, Jodi, live in Livonia and have 4 great kids who stay very active. During his free time, he enjoys lifting weights, playing video games, and reading comics. As a Metro-Detroit native, Mike grew up drinking the Detroit Lions Kool-aid and is a die hard Michigan Wolverine fan.
Jared Takasaki - Worship Director / Youth Leader
Music has always been a passion of Jared's, ever since learning the ukulele in the 7th grade on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Now, he's using those gifts to help educate the Body of Christ in what it means to "worship the Father in spirit and truth" (John 4:23-24). Having visited Port Huron on a youth missions trip in high school, Jared had always hoped to one day live in Michigan. Now that they've settled in Detroit Metro, Jared, his beautiful wife, and their daughter enjoy Pokemon hunting, gardening, watching anime, and playing in the snow (for now).
Jodi Fabian - Children's Director
During the school year, she's a kindergarten teacher. On the weekends, you'll find her upstairs working with kids, teaching the next generation how to love and follow Jesus. In her down time, she likes to garden, read a good book, and catch up on her favorite shows.
Jill Crandell - Jill of All Trades
Jill has done a little bit of just about everything over the decade she's been attending Ignition. She currently works in the office doing such exciting things as Accounting and Website. Jill loves God, her husband and kids, anime, knitting, video games, reading, and being weird.
