2018 Conference Speaker

Paul Mallard2018 CONVENTION SPEAKER: Paul Mallard, Pastor





Since being called to the pastoral ministry in 1982, Paul has served as pastor in three churches – in Chippenham, Worcester and Bath. For three years, he was the president of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches and has been involved in a variety of ministerial training schemes, including engagement in “pastoring” pastors.

Paul is currently one of the pastors at Widcombe Baptist Church in Bath. Although being in popular demand, his church regularly releases him to serve Christian conferences and conventions throughout the UK and beyond. He is the author of two books: Invest your Suffering, bringing biblical encouragement by their experience with chronic illness, and Staying Fresh, addressing the important subject of maintaining spiritual vitality in today’s busy and demanding world.

He is married to Edrie, and they have four children and five grandchildren. For the last twenty years, Paul and Edrie have had to live with Edrie’s serious neurological degenerative disease. This has shaped their ministry together and proven God’s continual faithfulness.
