Paul joined the staff in 2022 as the Pastor of Discipleship and Outreach. Paul was born and raised on the West Coast and while the Lord has taken him and his family to Texas and Tennessee his heart never stopped beating on the west coast. He earned a Bachelor of Applied Theology from California Baptist University and a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Southwestern Theological Seminary. Paul has dedicated nearly 20 years of work in the church to developing discipleship systems and groups for churches all over the united states. He and his wife Kristen were married in 2007, have two rad kids: Addison and Wesley, and two of the most relaxed dogs you’ll ever meet. He is devoted to his hometown teams (SF Giants, 49ers, and Warriors) and is a diehard Timbers Fan.
