David Pawson's Fireside Chats

David Pawson has an international ministry as a speaker and writer. His series on 'Unlocking the Bible' has sales the world over. In a completely new venture he is broadcasting 'Fireside Chats' as a means of reaching a worldwide audience using the technology of the internet.

Update: The following transmission is now over. There was a bit of a 'glitch' at the DP end and at the 'listening end' I found that I could only access the broadcast by using Firefox (browser) on a desktop PC (running Windows 7). It didn't work using Internet Explorer; and neither FF, IE nor Google Chrome (browsers) could connect on a laptop PC running Vista).
No doubt these teething problems (at both ends of the connection) will be overcome.

David Pawson is now in his 82nd year of life. He is still travelling and ministering on an international basis and has recently returned from a conference in America at the International House of Prayer where he spoke on a number of very important subjects including Divorce and Remarriage.

Pawson who was formerly a pastor in Goldhill Baptist Church and then Guildford Baptist Church has, through and throughout his ministry, tackled important topics head on. His books have included titles on male leadership, spirit baptism, the Toronto blessing, the doctrine of Hell etc.

In 2003 he felt that God was speaking to him about 'The Challenge of Islam to Christians', and in a video and book of that title, Pawson documented the present rapid rise of Islam in the West. He spoke of what Islam is, arguing that its rejection of Jesus Christ's divinity mean the two faiths cannot be reconciled, and he proposes a Christian response, based on the church purifying itself.

David Pawson1From his childhood in the north of England, David Pawson had wanted to be a farmer, but by the time he had completed his studies for a B.Sc. in Agriculture at Durham University, he felt God was calling him into full-time Christian ministry. He then studied for an M.A. in theology at Wesley House, Cambridge University, and subsequently joined the Royal Air Force as a chaplain, serving in Aden.

After leaving the RAF he served as a Methodist minister, but went on to become the pastor of Gold Hill Baptist Church in Buckinghamshire.

Later, as pastor of Guildford Baptist Church ('Millmead', which he helped to design), he established a reputation among both evangelicals and charismatics as a Bible teacher. From here his teaching tapes - originally made for the church's sick and elderly members - became popular worldwide. Under his ministry, Millmead became one of the largest Baptist churches in the United Kingdom.

Pawson left Millmead in 1979 and engaged in an itinerant worldwide Bible teaching ministry. As of 2010, Pawson, aged 80, is still preaching at events across the globe.

His teaching and resources can be found at Anchor Recordings.
