Ian Deane

Senior Pastor

Pastor Ian is a gifted preacher/teacher whose passion is to see the CHBC fellowship grow in maturity and godliness to the glory of God.

Pastor Ian joined the pastoral team at CHBC in 2008. He and his wife, Janice, have two sons.

"I am very grateful to the Lord for His grace in enabling me to serve as a pastor for the past 17 years. It is a privilege to be part of a church that has a strong commitment to proclaiming the gospel. It is my desire for people to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and then to grow in their relationship with Him. Furthermore, I long to see Christians proclaiming the good news to the lost both in our community and overseas. As I reflect over the years of ministry, I could not have done it without the love and support of my wife, Janice, and the magnificent grace of God. We are deeply grateful to God for blessing us with two wonderful sons, Michael and Stephen, who have and continue to give us great joy."
