Pastor Doug Batchelor
As a teenager, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy—everything but happiness. His search led him to drugs, fights, and suicidal fantasies, but he still was convinced that life held no purpose. Before his search ended, a cave in the hills above Palm Springs became his home, and he eventually had to scavenge for food in garbage bins.
The happiness Doug wanted eluded him until the day he began reading the dust-covered Bible a fellow “searcher” had left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle!
His down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life stems from his own experiences. Pastor Doug is now President and Speaker for Amazing Facts Ministries, a worldwide evangelistic organization taking the gospel and the three angels' messages to the entire world.
He is an energetic man of vision and deep spirituality with an unusual ability to communicate not only to the churches, but also secular-minded people all around the world. His down-to-earth approach to Christian living has changed countless lives while also effectively sharing powerful Bible truth in a way anyone can understand.
Today, Doug Batchelor lives in Sacramento, California, with his wife Karen and has five children. He is the Senior Pastor of Sacramento Central Church and can be seen around the country on television on The Everlasting Gospel and Central Study Hour. He can also be heard weekly hosting the live call-in radio program Bible Answers Live. He is the author of several books, including The Truth About Mary Magdalene, The Richest Caveman, and To See The King.
