Ian was part of the senior staff, when renewal began at the Catch the Fire Church in Toronto (Formerly - Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship) in January 1994. The Father called Ian from the senior staff, in 1998, in order to carry the message of the Father's Love to the nations, on a full time basis.
Ian sees as his mission, to present the Father, by the Holy Spirit, in such a way that people may actually "Encounter this Love" for themselves. This is a transforming message, which focuses on His goal "to make us more like His loving and merciful Son Jesus". Ian sees that his ministry is not about presenting people with more "Information" regarding the Father, but instead, relying on the Holy Spirit to bring the "Revelation", through teaching and ministry, which in turn brings foundational heart change.
