About Ian
  • Education: I have a BA in theology with Honors, although I dont regard my education as very important, the reason being that the most valuble education we can recieve is the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
  • Experience: I have been a senior pastor for just over ten years now, and have been priviledged to serve the Lord.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Thank you, and please take Paul's warning very seriously - Make sure of the things you hear, test the message and ensure that it is supported and backed up by the Word of God.
  • Family: I have been blessed with the most wonderful family. I have been married for 17 years, and our daughter is 13 years old. My family is the one human force that keeps me going in the minsitry, keeping me motivated but also humble, and I thank God for them.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Make sure that what yo say is biblical and accurate. No-One can prepare a sermon in a hour, it takes sweat and tears to convey the truth of our saviour. It is an awesone task to proclaim the glory of Christ untill He comes again.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind and all your understanding.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Oh, boy... There arent enough characters to desribe these...
  • What I want on my tombstone: Follow me, as I followed Christ

    Predestination is most likely one of the most controversial topics in Christian circles today, and yet undoubtedly one of the most vital. In this teaching session we have a look at an introduction to the doctrine of predestination.

    In theological circles there are two main camps when it comes to the doctrine of predestination. One the one hand we have people who feel that because this doctrine is so embroiled in past difficulty and misunderstanding, that it is better to rather avoid the topic, and not to discuss it at more

    If God sovereignly ordains whatsoever shall come to pass, is it possible for Him to 'change His mind'?

    based on 4 ratings

    If God ordains whatsoever shall come to pass, does that mean that He is also the author of evil and sin? We have a look at human evil and the role it plays in Gods eternal plan for us.

    Psalm 135 Is God responsible for human evil Over the last few weeks we have been looking at providence and what that means to us today. We saw in the first lesson that providence means that God sees everything, past, present and future, and He sees what causal effect every single action more
