Paul James-Griffiths
Evangelism Lecturer

Paul was born in Malaysia in 1962 and was converted to Christ out of Paganism/New Age when he was 20. He qualified in Ancient History and Classical Studies at University and taught for three years before God called him into full-time mission work in 1988. His first ministry was with London City Mission (1988-2004). He was a church based evangelist for three years, followed by seven years of running a mission centre in a London estate. After this he was appointed to the position of Chaplain to the West End Theatres. At the same time he pioneered outreaches into New Age festivals and districts in Covent Garden and Camden Town.  In 2004 Paul moved to Scotland to work with Edinburgh City Mission. He has pioneered the Christian Heritage Centre next to the Royal Mile, the Celtic Tour, outreach teams to the University students, the Underbelly (the night-clubbers in the Cowgate) and the crowds at the pagan festivals of Beltane and Samhuinn.

Paul works together with his wife, Isolde, to put on classical music concert outreaches, and also produces resources for evangelism. Paul and Isolde have three grown-up children: Miriam, Samuel and Julia. His favourite hobbies are enjoying beautiful walks, good food, fishing, music, history and genealogy.

In an exciting partnership between FMBC and Edinburgh City Mission, Paul has joined our team to develop and teach the new curriculum for evangelism. Paul has a strong track record of communicating the Christian faith in innovative, biblical and compassionate ways. He brings experience, enthusiasm and a God-oriented approach to explaining the greatest story ever told.
