Born in Wales in 1956
Ian was born in Wales and came to faith as a teenager which irrevocably changed his perspective on life and his future. He became quickly involved in church leadership and in particular, in pastoring young people and later led the National Youth Department for the Assemblies of God in Great Britain for 10 years. He then went on to found and lead Youth Ministries International which later became Next Level International.
Next Level International
This ministry worked in 17 nations in Europe, with International offices in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada and the UK. Under Ian’s leadership, they planted 200 churches largely in cities with no known Christians and systematically trained 10,000 leaders seeing almost 6000 people engaged in short term mission’s outreaches across Europe.
The Proton Foundation
In 2002, Ian felt a call to diversify and to create a brand-new approach to ministry in modern-day Europe. His innovation grew out of frustration with the fact that although NLI had seen numerous churches planted across Europe in partnership with the national church movements, only minimal levels of cultural transformation had taken place.This led to Ian setting up the Proton Foundation, a charity which continues today. The Charity started with a special focus on social action projects across Europe and has impacted numerous communities.
In recent years, the Proton Foundation organically began to shift its focus to running the Flourish Project in the UK, which equips young people to develop healthy self-esteem, mental and emotional wellbeing. Ian felt like a parent watching his child mature and find their own way in the world. To help facilitate this, Ian stepped back from Proton to set up Global Transformation, (originally a project of Proton which encompasses Ian’s networking and fundraising activities,) as a separate organisation. Global Transformation’s focus is to instil Kingdom values into the church and marketplace, bringing community transformation. Bringing Heaven to Earth. Although Proton and Global Transformation are now separate organisations, they remain supporters and advocators of each others work.
In 2017, Ian felt motivated to develop a curriculum that would assist businesses, NGO’s, Educational institutions, churches and charities to transform their communities. The objective was to create a curriculum to provide a comprehensive road map, giving people the tools they need to bring about transformation within their communities and areas of influence. Not just being a Christian, but bringing the Kingdom into every area of their lives!
To do this, Ian gathered together some long term friends, (Brian Beattie and Bruce Mann from Ontario and Bruce Freison from British Columbia) and in the final stages, two more friends joined the group, Drew Brown from Texas and David Koerts from the Netherlands. Excitingly, through the development of the curriculum the team were asked to submit a bid for funding to mentor 12 companies in the USA to become Kingdom Companies. Originally calling their group the Global Transformation Collective, they rebranded as Kingdomize Global to set up a corporation in Canada to submit this bid. The plan is to build a team of consultants and trainers in Canada, USA and Europe to mentor these companies. This will be an outworking of the curriculum, which is the bedrock for this corporation.
