Paul started pursuing youth ministry long before he came to Havana Church of Christ in June 2008. Born and raised in Streator, IL he experienced the joy of having good mentors who loved and formed him through the youth ministry of his home church and at the small K-12 school he attended. Paul dedicated his life to youth ministry at a CIY conference in the summer of 2001, attained his B.A. in Youth Ministry from Lincoln Christian College (now Lincoln Christian University) in 2008. In that year he also married his beautiful high school sweetheart Tiffany, survived kidney cancer and moved to Havana, IL where they now live and raise their lovely daughter Alethea and her handsome little brother Gabriel. Paul is becoming a fully developed and devoted follower of Jesus Christ who wants to see others become fully developed and devoted followers as well. He is a disciple, husband, daddy, leader, student minister and a Bear’s fan in that order.
