Our Pastor

Pastor Ian Taverner grew up in a home with some Christian beliefs but wasn’t saved until the age of 32 when he heard an online gospel presentation and called upon the name of the Lord. Soon after, Pastor Taverner started the search for good churches in the UK and after attending a few different ones, he also got involved with a group of Soulwinners that came from all over the UK.


He continued to attend church whilst meeting at various Soulwinning marathons and in September 2021, he started training to be the leader of the UK Satellite Ministry of Sure Foundation Baptist Church, Vancouver, Washington, under Pastor Aaron Thompson.


Pastor Taverner was first ordained Evangelist on September 19th, 2021 by Pastor Thompson and then on August 23rd, 2023, he was ordained the Pastor by Pastor Thompson and the church became independent.


Pastor Taverner is married to his wife Lisa and they have five children, Ella, Jack, Grace, Charles and James. If you have any questions or comments please email him here.
