Our team


Ahren & Anna Summach

Team Leaders


Ahren is the Lead Pastor of Ottawa Valley Vineyard. Ahren’s main passion is to see the church transformed through relationship with Jesus, gathered to worship and humbly walking out Jesus’ mission day by day. Ahren loves reading, writing, preaching, theology, business, golf, fishing, driving and travelling the outdoors in general, but most of all he loves his wife and two sons!


Anna serves as co-leader with Ahren. She is a listener who hears what happens in meetings with more clarity than her daft husband ever will. :) Anna is primarily focused on giving oversight to our kid’s ministry, ovvGROW. She also keeps us connected with Vineyard Canada through service on the VC board. Anna enjoys learning, exercise, cooking, crafts and kids. She also loves her unruly husband and two unruly boys. :)


Jake Warren

Community Life Coordinator


Jake handles all things marketing and communications with a good helping of administrative coordination. On off days you'll find Jake in a canoe somewhere, or on the basketball court!


Doug & Linda Sprunt

Men's Ministry, Women's Ministry & Administration


Doug's spiritual gifting of a pastor/shepherd is evident in all he does at OVV. With a listening ear and a tender heart, he works with Ahren in "tending the flock". When not doing his "pastor-thing", he enjoys being with his nine grandchildren as often as possible.


In Linda's role of "admin", she tries to keep everyone on the same page; as Women's Ministry Leader, she gets to be involved in the lives of the ladies at OVV. But, her main role in life is being a Gramma to her nine grandchildren.



Kathy Moore-Crispin

Youth Coordinator


Kathy has her dream job working with the youth of OVV! She is passionate about building community and connecting youth with Jesus. She also looks after the logistics that allows that to happen. When she’s not hanging with the youth, you’ll find her at home where she’s mom to her five kids and wife to her husband Simon.
