Congregational Care and Senior Adultsoffice: 704-892-8005

Paul primarily oversees the activities of two ministries. One being Congregational Care where the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of congregants are met.  This can be in the forms of financial assistance, a listening ear and prayer, resourcing a need, a much needed meal or groceries for the home, bereavement support, a hospital or home visit.  Congregational Care comes alongside people in helping them navigate the challenges of life in a loving Christ like way.  The other ministry that Paul gives oversight to is the Senior Saints Ministry.  This ministry is for adults who are in their senior season of life.  The ministry offers opportunities for ongoing spiritual growth, fellowship with their peers, social outings, and opportunities to serve.  The Senior Saints ministry slogan is “Ever growing – always fruitful”.  Regardless of age this ministry realizes that we all have time to grow, to serve and to enjoy.

Prior to coming to Grace in 1998, Paul previously worked in the field of Sports Medicine with positions in educational settings, hospital and private practices.  He has degrees from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, the University of Arizona in Arizona, and St. Thomas University in Florida.

Paul has been married to Desiree since 1982 and they have three young adult children and two grandsons.  They are; oldest son, Matt married to Sarah with sons Caeden and Greyson, our  daughter Christy, and our youngest son Chris.  Paul enjoys vegetable gardening and cooking.
