Paul enjoys traveling with his wife and three kids, a good read, college basketball and strong coffee, among many other things. He doesn’t enjoy injustice or cilantro. Paul describes ministry this way: “I try to invite people to recognize and own their unique story, calling and gifts and employ them in a way that increases and enriches the good things God is already doing in the world. As a pastor, I do my best to point others to God and encourage them on the journey. Hopefully we have a good time in the process.”
