Please take some time to look over this website and learn more about the ministry, message and writings of Dr. Paul Benware.

Our desire in Ministry: Our desire is to serve the Lord Jesus’ Church through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. The transforming of people takes place through the Word of God in the hands of the Spirit of God and it is an honor to be part of that process.

The Versus that guide us: II Corinthians 4:5, 7
“For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake, but we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness may be of God and not from ourselves.”


Dr. Paul Benware is currently retired from the full-time classroom ministry. However, he still teaches college students at the Jackson Hole Bible College (in Jackson, Wyoming), teaching some 6 modular courses per school year there. He presently is also involved in preaching and teaching in conferences and local churches.  Before retiring into this present ministry, he was a professor in the Bible department at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, Arizona. He came to ACU in the summer of 2008 when it was then known as Southwestern College.

Before coming to serve at ACU, Dr. Benware was on the faculty of the Los Angeles Baptist College (now the Master’s University), and on the faculty of the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. After his years at MBI, he taught in the School of Biblical Studies at Philadelphia Biblical University. During these years of teaching in the college classroom he has been involved in several local churches, often holding pastoral or staff positions. This local church involvement reflects his conviction that the local church is primary in doing Christ’s work in the world today.

Dr. Benware has written ten books including “Understanding End Times Prophecy”, “The Believer’s Payday” and surveys of both the Old and New Testaments. His more recent books have included “Daniel: God’s Man With God’s Message” and “Understanding the Book of Hebrews”. Hopefully, two additional books will be published this year. He has also contributed to several other books and has published articles in several journals and magazines.

He holds the B.A. degree from the Los Angeles Baptist College, Th.M. degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Th.D. degree from Grace Theological Seminary.

Dr. Benware lives with his wife Anne in Litchfield Park, Arizona. They have four children and eight grandchildren: Tyler, Tannah, Sophie, James, Eva, Briana, Logan and Caligan.
