Ian Clevy moved to Strasbourg with his wife Maria in 2012; they have been attending TICOS since then. A third addition to their family arrived in 2016 with the birth of their beautiful, charming, and somewhat cheeky daughter Abigail.
At TICOS, in addition to being a member of the council, Ian leads the ‘Sliding’ team, which is responsible for projecting media and recording the sermon during services. Kind of tall and nearly slim, Ian stands out in a crowd with his long, wavy, red hair. In his spare time, Ian likes to play and design games of all kinds.
Vincent is originally from Thann, south of Alsace. He is married to Myriam and together, they are the happy parents of 4 wonderful children.
In 1999, the whole family moved abroad without knowing that it was going to be a long and great adventure (in Czech Republic, China, Hong Kong). In July 2015, they returned to France, to Strasbourg, with a mixed feeling of being back home and being strangers in their own country. They were thrilled to find out about Trinity Church. They enjoyed its multicultural, dynamic and friendly atmosphere and immediately called it “home”. They love to see how God unites people from different cultures, languages and continents.
In his spare time, Vincent is keen on hiking, jogging, playing the guitar or reading a wide variety of books. He also enjoys watching a good game of any sport on TV. Vincent is one of the elders at TICOS and a member of the Council. He is part of the Worship Team as well as the Events Team.
