18th July 2024 – Evangelism among older People with Ian Knox

Ian Knox, proudly our oldest Ambassador, has been a lifelong evangelist.

Married to Ruth, with four married sons and ten grandchildren, he has allegedly “retired” to the lovely Northumbrian coastline. His career began as a solicitor, before he was the staff evangelist for three years in his twenties with the Covenanters. He returned to the law for several years, ultimately as the lawyer for social care and children safeguarding with Coventry city council, before joining the Church Pastoral Aid Society in 1982 as their staff evangelist, a calling he has followed ever since, latterly with the 40:3 Trust. He is a founder member of the College of Evangelists.

His evangelism and teaching gifts have taken him to many countries in Africa, including Kenya, where he is a Canon of Bungoma Cathedral and where he was ordained in 2005, and also Uganda, where he is Canon Missioner in the Diocese of Lango. He is the author of a dozen books, including ‘Finishing Well’, commissioned by and written for Faith in Later Life.

Now aged 80, Ian thanks God that Jesus called him to be a Christian when he was a boy , and is delighted to have been a preacher for over sixty years. He enjoys leading a little home group each week for his village church, most of whom are elderly. One of his greatest joys is helping older people put their trust in Jesus.

Our Church Champion Event

We are thrilled to welcome Ian Knox to our next online event on July 18th when he will share his experience, insights, and passion for evangelism among older people. Our CEO, Alexandra Drew, will interview Ian about the importance of sharing the Good News of Jesus with older people, how it differs from evangelism with other age groups, and how we can help older people come to know Jesus. The event will feature inspiring stories, valuable advice, and a Q&A session. We hope you’ll join us!
