His work has received attention from Christian publications and mainstream media outlets, including the Express, the Times and CNN. As a faith-based documentary maker, he co-presents ByFaith TV.
Born in the 1970s and converted in the 80s, he received his call as a teenager after an encounter with the Holy Spirit, ushering 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 global explorations include sharing the hope of Christ in South America, traversing Africa from Cairo to the Cape, exploring Russia on the Trans Siberian Railway from Mongolia to Moscow, voyaging by canoe to share God’s Word with remote tribes in the Pacific and entering the jungles of South East Asia to discover 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.
