Lived 1888 - 1971

Theodore Austin-Sparks, often known as “Mr. Sparks” or “TAS”, was a British Christian evangelist and author. He was ordained as a Baptist minister at the age of 24 and led three congregations in Greater London from 1912 to 1926. During this time, he spoke at conferences with Jessie Penn-Lewis and was associated with her publication and speaking ministry, The Overcomer Testimony. In 1926, Austin-Sparks resigned his Baptist ordination and established a conference and training center at Honor Oak in southeast London. From this center, he and his co-workers ran a publishing operation that printed a bi-monthly magazine, A Witness and a Testimony, from 1923 until his death in 1971. He also published books he had written or were edited from transcripts of his recorded messages.
