Daven Hee, Senior Leader
In 2003, Pastor Daven (PD) gathered a team and branched out from Grace Bible to start Innovative Concepts (IC). As senior leader, Daven delivers inspiring, straightforward messages that are easily relatable. Additionally, he is deeply committed to training and developing leaders and serving the local community. Daven’s driving vision is to restore the next generation’s trust and faith in God and in the church. Daven has accomplished many things in his life and is most proud of his successful 30-year marriage to Barbie, raising two young-adult daughters, and being a grandpa to three young grandsons and a young granddaughter.
Barbie Hee, Women's Ministry Leader
Barbie has been an unwavering support system to Pastor Daven and has been an integral part in shaping IC. She helped established the children's ministry, as she has done at other churches in the past, and now works with many women in the church. She shares sound advice based on her life experiences as a mom, wife, and businesswoman. Barbie has been in real estate for more than 15 years and is currently a broker at Primary Properties.

"I give my time to IC because we are committed to helping each other achieve our dreams.

I also like the friendships that I’ve made at IC."
Chad Moriyama, Young Professional Leader
"As leaders of Innovative Concepts we strive to make other people better. Coming to IC I feel like I belong to a family rather than just a church. We all lift each other up. We utilize our gifts and talents to reach and exceed our God given potential."

"While at IC, I have learned the value of relationships, family, and how to genuinely care for others. I like that we are a church of action that makes a lasting difference in ourselves, our families, and our communities. I continue to help and serve because everyone deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. I love the fact that we are one family made up of different people who all love God!"
