Serving Christ in humility and love.


Rev. Dr. Dawson Elliott


Rev. Dr. Dawson Elliott, PhD has been in ministry for 28 years with 19 of those years in ministry in Perth, Western Australia. Dawson has a heart after God’s own heart and leads BCWA with a blessed sense of “Lord, Your Kingdom come!” He is highly missional, both locally and abroad. His doctoral research was in the field of systematic theology with an exploration of ecclesiology (Church). He has explored the hermeneutics of Schillebeeckx (a Roman Catholic theologian) with a particular focus on the sacramentality of the church. Dawson has renewed this model of the church by using the ecclesiology of Schillebeeckx as a kind of ‘foil’ against which to develop an alternative ecclesiology, more amenable to Evangelical Protestants. As his point of departure, Dawson has explored through intensive analysis, the Roman Catholic ecclesiological perspectives via Lumen Gentium. Dawson has written two books, namely, The Doctrine of Sanctification in the Church of the Nazarene and  Blessed are you - the Spirit-filled life. He has also published two articles. Dawson is ‘blessedly’ married to Cheryl-lee and they have two blessed unmarried adult children, Tersia and Callion.
