Ministry Of Ian Oliver
He started his first business when he was 16yrs old. By the time he was 20, he was earning an excellent income, which was mostly wasted on his lifestyle. Then on August 22nd 1971, in his early 20’s, Jesus transformed his life. Within 1 day he was a completely new person - totally delivered from alcohol, smoking and foul language. Within 3 months of his conversion, he was called to the ministry directly by Jesus and commissioned to:
Do exploits for Jesus.
Edify the Body of Christ.
Establish the truth.
Lift up and magnify Jesus Christ.
This was confirmed by three prophetic words from God in three countries, Nottingham - England, Toronto – Canada and Rome, NY. USA.
He was clearly told by the Holy Spirit, that he would be taught and led completely by Him. This has been evident down through the years, with many signs and wonders following the preaching of God’s word. After spending 11 years in the full time pastorate, Ian was again commissioned to “go beyond the walls of denominationalism”.
He has witnessed, over the last 27 years, a strong prophetic call and anointing. He has ministered in many diverse settings, from Universities, Camp Meetings and Synagogues, to many different denominational churches, in England, the U.S.A. and across Canada.
Further to this, Ian has owned several businesses, including a house renovating business that focused on kitchen and bathroom renovations. He owned a window and door installation company that serviced five window manufacturers and employed as many as 14 men. He has also worked with a large company that built church buildings, as a site supervisor. His goal in all his business ventures was to be an example of Christ, providing things “Honest before all men”.
Ian’s desire is to see the members of the body of Christ built up and equipped to destroy the works of the Devil.
His continual prayer is that all the glory goes to Jesus.
The Lord has recently called him to move out again into the harvest field, and to go to the Body of Christ with a powerful message of hope. This also was confirmed prophetically and the Lord has specifically called them to start in Edmonton.
Ian is a credential holder with Fellowship of Christian Assemblies (FCA) and believes in being accountable to the whole body of Christ. He has a real “servant’s heart” and views the ministry as both a joy and a tremendous privilege.
He is uniquely led by the Holy Spirit to give powerful prophetic messages for communities, church fellowships as well as individual persons. (See the testimonies on the website).
Ian will be available for meetings across Canada, as the Lord directs.
