Ian Howie

Ian foolishly thought retirement might be about relaxing and taking life easy, he found it’s more about cessation of income, and life otherwise continuing as normal. His career has taken him from country Victoria to New Zealand, back to Melbourne, then on to Sydney and now to the Lake Macquarie area.

Along the way he married a beautiful wife, gained three wonderful boys and ultimately their spouses, and now finds that his schedule, if such exists, has to expand to meet the developing interests of 8 amazing grandkids aged from 4 to 17! He’s loved introducing Jesus to children, young people and adults as a teacher, chaplain and pastor. In addition to his family Ian still supports young people seeking some grandfatherly wisdom, and loves to get time in his garden, to read extensively and to pursue his keen interest in ensuring that Jesus and His message is easily understood in today’s complex and increasingly critical world.
