About David Pawson
A speaker and author with uncompromising faithfulness to the scriptures, David brings clarity and a message of urgency to Christians looking to uncover hidden treasures in God’s Word. David Pawson was born in 1930. His father was a Methodist minister and his grandfather, a Professor of Agriculture. David, however, began his career with a degree in Agriculture at Durham University, England. With a newly acquired farm in Scotland, he was surprised when God intervened and led him to become a Christian minister.
After completing an MA in Theology at Cambridge University, David became a chaplain in the Royal Air Force for three years. From there he moved on to pastor a number of churches in England including the Millmead Centre in Guildford, where under David’s caring leadership, the church became a model for many UK church pastors. His time at Millmead was also his most fruitful in terms of the library of his audio teachings. In 1979 David was released from the Millmead Centre to fulfill a wider international ministry.
David authored more than 80 books, some of which include: The Normal Christian Birth, When Jesus Returns, The Challenge of Islam to Christians, Word and Spirit Together, Once Saved, Always Saved? and his ‘Unlocking the Bible’ series of 98 videos available on online or on MP4 or DVD. David also compiled a Christian Discipleship Training series ‘Explaining Biblical Truth’ that sets out to simplify what the Bible says about subjects important to Christians wishing to grow in relationship with a living God.
