Paul has served as our Pastor of Congregational Life since 2015. He is passionate about helping people find and follow Jesus and get connected with other believers. He grew up as a preachers kid in southern Minnesota and placed his faith in Jesus Christ at a Lowell Lundstrom Crusade. He went on to graduate from Northwestern College in 1990 and Bethel Seminary in 1996. 

Prior to his time at Grace Church, Paul served as the Church Planting Pastor at Anchor Point in Wabasha for 10 years. His ministry began in 1992 as a Youth Pastor at Crosstown Covenant in Minneapolis. After seminary, he moved his family to Florida to serve as an Associate Pastor at St. Petersburg Community Church. Later he received a call to International Falls, MN, to serve as an Associate Pastor at Mission Covenant, a church his grandfather started in 1925. Interesting how God works! 

He and his wife Lori have been married for 25 years and have three great kids. Paul loves being outdoors, boating, traveling, drinking coffee, meeting new people and spending time with his family.
