I first heard of Paul Taylor when he was interviewed on Wretched Radio by Todd Friel. His grasp of Creation Science, the Christian Worldview, and Gospel clarity, quickly impressed me. When I found out that he was the director of the Mouth St. Helens Creation Center in Washington state, I determined to visit his ministry and invite him to be our keynote speaker at an Equipping Conference. I contacted Paul and arranged his visit to Kootenai to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Mount St. Helen’s eruption (May 1980).
In August 2019, my wife and I drove to Castle Rock, Washington to visit Paul’s Creation Center, and tour the Mount St. Helens devastation area with him. We had a full day alone in a car with Paul as he took us around the mountain to various significant locations. The rest of our group followed along in other vehicles joining us for lunch, a short nature hike and personal tours of different sites. I was blessed to be able to spend the entire day with Paul.
I am very excited to have him here for our 2020 Equipping Conference on May 29-30th. Please consider joining us this year for some creation apologetics training from a very fine and gifted communicator.

Director, Mount Saint Helens Creation Center
Paul Taylor was born in Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester in the North of England, in 1961. Trained as a musician, he eventually got interested in sciences in his later high school years, getting saved at the age of 15 in 1977. After about a year, Paul got a Saturday job in a Christian bookshop, where he came upon literature from a creationist organization in the UK. He was astonished that there were people around – even those with scientific qualifications – that did not believe the theory of evolution. The bookstore manager, who held a degree in science, explained these things to him. From that point on, Paul has written and spoken on the subjects of creation, evolution, Genesis and apologetics.
After obtaining a degree in Chemistry, and a teaching certificate from the University of Nottingham, Paul became a high school science teacher. He worked successfully in this career for 18 years, rising through the ranks, eventually to become a Head of Science. Outside of work, Paul was involved in his church, preaching, teaching and leading worship, as well as writing worship songs.
In 2000, Paul left teaching to set up an ICT training business, training people mostly in Microsoft Office applications, and web development applications.
In 2005, he was invited to join Answers in Genesis, and I worked at their UK office for 6 years, moving to the United States in 2011 to work for Creation Today, in Pensacola, Florida. Today, Paul and his wife are now the Directors of the Mount St. Helen’s Creation Information Center, at Castle Rock, Washington – at the start of the main tourist route leading to the volcano, Mount St. Helens. From this base, Paul continues to travel around the United States, speaking on creation, Genesis and apologetics.
Paul is married to Geraldene, and they have five children and four grandchildren between them.
