Ivybridge Baptist Church Ministry Partner


Ministry Partner: Ian Rush

Ivybridge, England

Ian and Claire Rush, Camden, Daisy, Jasper, Hugo, Esme

Ian was born and raised in England. After attending a church youth group for the first time as a teenager, he was saved after hearing the gospel proclaimed. Ian immediately had desires to serve within the church and learn more from God's Word. He met his wife, Claire, an Ohio native, at a Bible College in New York, and they were married in 2007. Having been involved in ministry in England for a number of years, Ian quickly realized his need for further training and was accepted into The Master's Seminary in 2015. After graduating seminary in 2018, the Rush family have moved to serve at the church Ian was saved at as a teenager. Their hope has always been to return to England.

Ministry Goals

Ian's aim is to proclaim the Word of God with the hope of strengthening the church through preaching, discipleship, and training ministries, and leading people to Christ through the proclamation of the gospel. There are opportunities for men's and women's training ministries, growth in family ministries, and connections with unbelieving families already connected to the church.

Ministry Description

Ian will have all of the usual functions of pastoral ministry with a particular focus on families with children at home.

Please Pray

  1. That God's Word would be honored within the church through preaching, discipleship, and training.
  2. For submission to the Word of God, ready to do whatever He instructs.
  3. For strength and unity founded upon God's Word within the leadership team of the church.
  4. That the body of believers would be built up and strengthened through God's Word.
  5. For evangelistic opportunities, salvations, and growth in the number of families currently attending the church.
  6. That the church would be a faithful, dependable light within the surrounding area.
