A native of England, Ian’s first exposure to Indiana was through a pastoral exchange program in 1995. Ian’s father exchanged pulpits with Pastor Aaron Wheaton, and the Hall family spent the summer at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church in Terre Haute. Ian returned to Indiana in 1997 to volunteer as a counselor at the Camp Mone’to and Retreat Center near Nashville in Brown County. Throughout his college years, Ian returned to Mone’to each summer to fulfill the role of program coordinator.
