Ian mackenzie: Paisley

Ian MackenzieI live in the town of Paisley and I am married to Rachel. We have two young kids, Finlay and Cara.

I have worked in the IT industry for just over 20 years and I have seen many technology changes in this time. I have an interest in using digital media tools to share Jesus and engage with future generations.

I was born and brought up on Lewis in the Western Isles. I did not grow up in a Christian home nor did I have any association to a church. The islands have a strong Free Church tradition, and I was aware of the influence the church had on the island, but religion did not appeal to me in anyway.

In my late 30's, I started going to church through circumstances around a baptism. After a time, I started hearing the Word of God in the sermon. God was revealing to me my need for a personal relationship with Jesus. The Gospel was becoming personal and relevant to my life. God made it clear to me I needed to pray for forgiveness and ask Jesus into my life. It came down to a simple choice to follow Jesus or not. I took the opportunity and I have never regretted it.

I'm a big Rangers fan and have followed the team all over Europe (even through the turmoil of the last few years). I'm into sports, fishing, gadgets, motorsports, technology - typical guys stuff really.

I'm excited to be involved with CVM as an area co-ordinator. I pray God will bless this area but most importantly, I want to see men come to hear and know about Jesus.
