In 2016, he met Elena at the Seminary and married her in 2017. Because Elena was studying in Canada, they remained separated by distance and united by love for 4 years.

Shortly after, he got the opportunity to emigrate to Whitehorse to live with his wife.

  • Liz Istchenko - Music Director

Years later she and her family moved up to the Yukon. She now lives in Whitehorse with her husband and sweet baby girl. When she started to attend Mountainview Church, she got involved in the music ministry there. Music is her passion and she is thankful to be a part of bringing people together to worship God. "For me, looking out and seeing people with their eyes closed, hands raised, or heads bowed, singing glory to our God is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. In those moments, they don't care about the band, they don't care about what they look like, it's just the church of Christ opening their hearts, singing His praise, and resting in Him. That's what music is for.

  • Elijah Istchenko - Pastoral Apprentice (Youth & Outreach)

    Elijah Istchenko came to know Jesus in 2018 after attending services at Mountainview Church. He's a thirty year old husband and very father of a little girl. Having come from a non-Christian background and a family without Christian roots, he is moved by the deep need unsaved people have to hear the name of Jesus in a personal way, rather than through media and entertainment outlets. He is currently being mentored by the formally recognized Elders at Mountainview and aspires to enter leadership someday.
