Paul J. Pastor


Paul J. Pastor (M.A., Western Seminary), is a writer, editor, and grassroots pastor living with his wife and three children in Oregon's majestic Columbia River Gorge. His work finds beauty and timeless spiritual wisdom in the natural world, biblical theology, and modern Christian life.

Paul’s careful eye and unique creative voice have garnered him more than twelve Evangelical Press Association awards for original writing, humor, and editorial work with Christianity Today’s Leadership Journal.

His debut book, The Face of the Deep: Exploring the Mysterious Person of the Holy Spirit, due out in February 2016 by David C. Cook, features extensive original iconography by Martin French.

Paul is a sought-after editor, with dozens of book-length projects, publication issues, and short form prose to his credit, including projects for Zondervan, The Green Collection, Wipf and Stock, and Plough Publishing. He is also a veteran interviewer and collaborative writer.

His last name is either providence or coincidence.
