AUTHOR ALLEN PAUL WEAVER III
Allen Paul Weaver III struggled with low self-esteem for the first half of his life. He attempted suicide at the age of 17 years old. Even though he was surrounded by family and friends who loved him, he could not see past his own pain. Thinking he had no future worth living for, suicide seemed like the only alternative. But God intervened and began to reveal his will over time. It wasn't until after his college graduation that he began to truly see himself, as God declared him to be in the Scriptures.
Now, in his 40's, Allen is living the future he didn't think existed! Over the past 23 years he has served in various ministerial capacities (as a youth pastor, an associate pastor and co-pastor). He currently serves as an Interim Pastor at Bethesda Baptist Church of New Rochelle, NY. Over these 23 years he has authored 9 books which help readers overcome the obstacles to their God-given dreams and purpose.
As a preacher and teacher in the NY area, Allen regularly speaks at local churches and for Christian associations. He uses his 40+ years of life experience, gifts, talents and biblical knowledge to help other Christians grow in their relationship with Christ and pursue their God-given purpose.
Allen seeks to help people discover their true identity in Christ, so they can experience God's resurrection power and gift of eternal life! He wants believers to be ready to meet Jesus (The Son of Man), whether at the point of death or on The Day when He returns to earth on the clouds of heaven as the rightful King and Judge of all.
Allen and his wonderful wife, Ijnanya have one amazing son.
