Yasmin Ravard-Andresen

Music Minister & Resistance Choir Director

Yasmin ushers us into an eclectic musical space to connect with God and gratitude during the 11am Celebration. She joined Valley & Mountain in September 2015 and
lives in the neighborhood with her husband Dave, and their two kids, Kavinder (6) and Anjali (3). 

Born and raised in Los Angeles and Portland, Yasmin grew up with a solid diet of the performing arts, interfaith spirituality, and multiethnic community. She graduated from the
University of Oregon with a degree in theatre and vegan food. She served as a campus minister and worship leader for eight years on college campuses throughout the Northwest and worked as a professional actor in Seattle for a few years.

Now, she spends most of her time learning alongside her children--practicing deep listening, cooking from scratch in the kitchen, making beautiful things at the art table, singing through the forest with friends, and traveling all along their bus route. She likes to mix things that don't often go together, blaze trails and generally live life out of the Box.
