Quakertown, Pa. Ivan H. Moyer was recently honored for 32 years of service to Quakertown Christian School (QCS). Current QCS board chairman Andrew Brunner presented Moyer with an engraved plaque in recognition of promotion of excellence, faithful leadership and selfless service as an alumnus, parent and board member.
Moyer is co-owner of Moyer’s Chicks, a 15,000 square foot facility located in Richland Township, Bucks County, PA. The company, founded in 1946 by Moyer’s father, Ernest Moyer, is one of the few independent chicken hatcheries remaining within the United States. Moyer, along with his siblings Leon and Eileen and brother-in-law Jerry Knechel, continue a commitment to the local community with an agricultural-based business that ships chicks across the United States and Canada.
Moyer has also carried on another family commitment: Moyer’s father helped to establish Rocky Ridge Mennonite School (now Quakertown Christian School) in 1951. Moyer’s passion for Christian education has led him to serve as chair of the school board as well as a member of various committees. He was instrumental in the construction of the school’s new campus, located on Paletown Road. Moyer strongly supports preserving the history and beginnings of the school so that future generations will be able to know and appreciate its foundation of faith.
Moyer has served in as the chair for the finance committee of Franconia Mennonite Conference and currently serves as a board member for Christopher Dock Mennonite High School. Moyer and his wife, Evelyn, have three children and seven grandchildren. He and his family are members of Rocky Ridge Mennonite Church.
