was born in New Zealand. Ian was saved in April 1982 then he had a life after death experience where he saw the Lord Jesus Christ in His resurrected, glorified form. Ian was night diving off the island of Mauritius when he was stung multiple times by Box Jellyfish, which are among the most venomous creatures in the world. Ian is not 100% sure which species of Box Jellyfish that stung him as it has been very hard to find info from Mauritius on them. Ian suffered as a child from allergies and had to take antihistamines on a regular basis as even a mosquito bite would cause him to swell up, so his reaction to these jellyfish stings was very bad. His testimony relates how he clung to life while getting to hospital, was declared clinically dead soon afterwards, and how during this time he had an encounter with God, which radically changed the direction of his life. He has been ordained as an Assemblies of God pastor & has been in ministry for the past 30 years. Ian has spoken in over 55 nations & has his testimony recorded on DVD, book etc. He has featured a number of times on CBN, God Channel, TBN, national radio & newspapers.
A hollywood movie of his testimony called The Perfect Wave is about to be released on October 19th in New York. In the movie, his praying mother is played by Cheryl Ladd and Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s son) plays Ian in the movie. Ian has planted a church with his wife Jane in London England called Kings Gate.
