Ian and Judith were
brought up in Baptist circles in Northern Ireland. Ian’s dad is Pastor

dad is Pastor S.C. Morrison of Thomas Street Baptist Church, Portadown. Both
Ian and Judith trusted in Christ as young children. Ian trained for Christian
work at the Irish Baptist College in Belfast. It was while he was working
with Judith’s dad as an assistant pastor that they met, and a few years
later they got married in 1994. By this time Ian was the pastor of
Mullaghmeen Baptist Church in Co. Fermanagh. It was while working there that
Ian was involved in planting the Cavan Church across the border. A year after
their marriage they moved to live in Cavan town and with 50% support from
Baptist Missions they have been developing the work there since. Judith
trained as a teacher in Stranmillis College in Belfast and now teaches music
two days per week in Lisnaskea High School in Co. Fermanagh.

Church, Portadown while he completed his BD degree (1989-90), and then five years
developing the new church at Mullaghmeen in Co. Fermanagh. (1990-95). Since
1st September 1995 Ian has been giving full-time pastoral care to the new
church in Cavan. As well as pastoring
the Cavan Church, and looking after the Youth Work, he is also responsible
for two Bible Study groups in Cavan and Virginia. Up until Christmas 2002 Ian
