About us

I chose the picture above around 5 years ago. I think it represents me. I feel very different from other people but happy how God made me.

I am Ian Banner and I have a few passions …

First I am passionate about the God who I serve. I am a fifty-seven years old born again charismatic Christian who lives in Sheffield, UK.

I am grateful that the Lord has blessed my life with many wonderful friends, adventures and gifts.

  • I am a travel preacher (been doing that for 20 years), where I preach and pray for people prophetically.
  • I sometimes lead worship (started doing that around 3 years ago)
  • I write books. My most well know is, “How to hear God’ by Ian Banner. You can find out about that <here>
  • I am the co-director of a charity in Uganda, called Forever Caring Homes. The charity is designed to look after young children who have lost their parents through the AIDS epidemic that swept through Africa.

I am passionate about my family. I have been married to my wife Merle for over 25 years – we met at university and we have 2 lads. One is studying a PhD in Climate Change at Sheffield University, the other a masters in Data Science at Manchester University

Here are me and Merle demonstrating a deep biblical teaching

Here’s a few recent photo of Merle taken in a Large Garden in the UK. My wife loves to visit large gardens. I go with her and usually write while she looks around

I am passionate about the church is Jesus Christ around the world rising up and taking its destiny forward as we reach the end times and revival comes to myself, my family, my church, my city, my country and my world. I know that a revival is coming because God told me in a dream. Click here to read the dream
