About: Ian was 14 years old when he accepted Christ as his Savior. As a high school student he sensed God’s call to a life fully devoted to Christian service. He is married to Heather and they have three children, Timothy (18), Michael (16) and Caleigh (10). The O’Brien family immigrated to the USA in 2008 in response to a persistent leading of the Spirit. This move was a step of faith with very few available resources. Since then, God has been faithful to open doors of provision and significant service opportunities to them.

Ian is passionate about inspiring people to reach their God-given potential and he counts it a privilege to invest in a developing generation of students at Trinity Bible College.

About: I was born and raised in Mohall, North Dakota.  I grew up in a large family with 7 brothers and sisters.  I was very involved in sports, drama and music during my high school years. My family was heavily involved in agriculture through the farm machinery business we were in for 30 years. Following graduation from Mohall Public School, I attended Minot State University pursuing a degree in Business Management.  

During this time I was married to Candyce Greek also of Mohall, North Dakota.  On completion of my education at Minot State, we entered into a NAPA Auto Parts business.  Later, my wife and I and our family moved to Ellendale, North Dakota to follow the call of God toward ministry, by attending and graduating from Trinity Bible College.

We served as pastor in 3 churches in North Dakota as well as serving in our District Office for 16 years in various ministry and training capacities.  In 2011 we returned to Ellendale to pastor the Ellendale Assembly of God church and teach at Trinity Bible College.  In the summer of 2012, we were invited to come on full time as the VP of Administration for Trinity Bible College. We are the parents of 4 grown children and 6 wonderful grandchildren.  I enjoy reading, spending time with our family and serving God’s people.
