Paul Backholer is an evangelical author, broadcaster, explorer and missionary. He is the co-founder of ByFaith Media and has appeared on Christian channels globally. As a faith-based documentary maker, he also produces and co-presents ByFaith TV.
Born in the 1970s and saved in the 80s, he received his call as a teenager after an encounter with the Holy Spirit, leading him to commit his life to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. He studied theology at Bible College, where he later served as a staff member and an itinerate preacher. Since then he has travelled to over forty nations working with Christian projects and charities.
Paul’s missionary adventures include sharing Christ in South America, traversing Africa from Cairo to the Cape, travelling on the Trans-Siberian Railway from Mongolia across Russia, voyaging by canoe to share God’s Word with remote tribes in the Pacific and entering the jungles of South East Asia to find unreached groups.
As a Bible-believing Christian, he is committed to the integrity of Scripture and faithfulness to it. His books are birthed from studies and his relationship with the Lord, and cover a variety of subjects, including walking closely with God, knowing the Holy Spirit, prophetic revelations grounded in Scripture, biblical archaeology and Christian history.
