Rev Dr Ian Duncum is a trained and accredited (with John Mark Ministries) church & non-profit consultant, working with church leaders to facilitate hundreds of churches of various denominations to maximise their growth or deal with issues blocking growth and health. Sometimes Ian has consulted with churches while pastoring them (intentional interim ministry), and is very experienced in leading churches through pastoral transitions (including advertising for permanent pastors). Alongside this, Ian provides consultancy for denominations and training for ministers, church leaderships and others.
Ian has been mentoring and coaching Christian leaders for many years, and this personal and skill development has helped many to take up significant church or para-church positions. Recently Ian has added pastoral supervision to provide a supportive space to reflect on ministry practice, and develop as a person and a minister (Member Australian Christian Mentoring Network, Member Australian Association of Supervision, authorised supervisor for many denominations).
Ian has held denominational leadership roles in church health/development and consultancy training/supervision, and a tertiary research position with NCLS Research/ACU. Ian is an accredited minister with a track record of growing and revitalising churches over 20 years, and he is passionate about church health and seeing churches move strongly into a changing future, impacting their local communities.
