David Orton

David Orton BA (Biblical Studies) Dip Min

David has served as a pastor, teacher, and ministry leader for over 30 years. He was a catalytic leader for citywide pastor's prayer summits across Australia touching hundreds of pastors from more than 20 denominations and served as the convener of the 'Open Heavens Over Australia Conference', designed to call the Australian church to a higher level of God's manifest presence. He has also recently pioneered Leadershift, an emerging experimental configuration of apostolic relationships.

David is a prophetic teacher and as the founder of Lifemessenger carries a word for breakthrough, particularly in the Western church. He is committed to seeing an emerging church across all nations and denominations restored to the apostolic foundation of intimacy with the Father. Communicating through conferences, schools, publishing, and electronic media he has a vision of the holiness of God and of global transformation.

David's book Snakes in the Temple: Unmasking Idolatry in Today's Church issues a fresh call to spiritual breakthrough in the Western church (published 2004 by Sovereign World UK).

David and Jenny were married in 1974 after graduating from Bible College. Jenny also holds a diploma of ministry and a BA, majoring in history. He and Jenny are the parents of two young-adult children, Daniel and Virginia, and reside on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne, Australia.

Who or what are you really worshipping?
5 stars By Lucy Rogers, Nov 20 2008
This is an excellent book. Maybe I only think so because it is so much where I am in my journey of following God.
In this book David Orton tells how he was challenged by God to wait on Him not seek position or placement in a religious system. David then takes us through a look at Scriptures both old and new Testament helping us to focus on God and His desire for us to have a relationship with Him rather than getting caught up in a system.
A must read for this generation revealing the way the world has seeped in to dominate the way 'church' is 'done' losing track of Christ's first principle: to have a relationship with the Father and so be part of God's Kingdom.
Read this and be challenged: Are you following form or God?
