Ian and Pauline Cole are the founders of the World Prayer Centre. They both travel and network globally with prayer leaders and organisations around the world to mobilise prayer and bring back amazing stories of what God is doing around the world to encourage believers in the UK. Pauline Cole is also the Financial Administrator.

The vision for the World Prayer Centre was first given in 1990 to Ian Cole, who is founder and chairman of the Birmingham-based charity Cornerstone and formerly the leader of the national prayer network Pray for Revival. Pray for Revival started in Birmingham in 1986 with a group of leaders who met to pray for the city, but whose vision over the nineties was extended to the nation and then to the world. Cornerstone Christian Charity (founded in 1980) was pioneered and developed through the 1980s and 1990s and ran up until 2010 – concluding after 30 years of life. It made a large impact on the lives of many young people, through reaching out to homeless young people and families in need and had a strong emphasis on the poor.
