Born and raised in Streator, Paul experienced the joy of having good mentors who loved and formed him through the youth ministry at Central Church of Christ and Woodland School. Paul dedicated his life to youth ministry at a CIY conference in the summer of 2001 and graduated from from Lincoln Christian College with a B.A. in Youth Ministry. That same year, he married his beautiful high school sweetheart Tiffany, survived cancer and moved to Havana, IL where he served in youth ministry for over a decade.
Paul, Tiffany and their two children moved back to Streator when Paul took on the role of Youth and Family Minister at Central. Paul then answered the call to be our Senior Minister in 2022.
