Paul J. Pastor


Paul J. Pastor (M.A., Western Seminary), is an author, 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 second book, The Listening Day: Meditations On the Way, Volume One, (April '2017, Zeal Books), features 90 devotional readings to help you know God today. Pastor invites you to listen in on honest conversations with God, who encourages, laughs, loves, rebukes, invites, and instructs. Each day's reading ends with a short prayer inviting you to experience God's rich presence.

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.
