John Bradshaw Picture



Pastor John Bradshaw’s journey in professional media started as a career in broadcasting. He worked as a disc jockey in his home country of New Zealand on many of its top radio stations before shifting his focus in 1990.
Propelled by a desire to find Bible-based truth and a deeper Christian experience, John began working as a full-time evangelist. He married Melissa and after 12 years, and becoming the father of son Jacob and daughter Shannon, the family decided to put down roots. In the years that followed, John served as pastor in Lexington, Kentucky, and College Place, Washington.
In January 2011, John became It Is Written’s new speaker/director. In his two decades of ministry, John has held more than 100 evangelistic series. His series have spanned 6 continents and impacted thousands of lives in hundreds of cities.
From working internationally on evangelistic projects, to speaking at conferences and events, to authoring books, to working at home base in Chattanooga, Tennessee, John continues to energetically lead the It Is Written ministry team and impact the world for Christ and His soon return.
