Pastor of worship and family ministries
Though he grew up in a churched home, Paul didn’t clearly hear the gospel until his high school years, when he committed his life to Christ. After graduating with a music degree from Cal State Northridge, he attended Talbot Seminary and received his Master of Divinity in 1983. He has been on staff at Hillside since 1989.
God has allowed Paul to use both his love for music and passion for God’s Word in his ministry at Hillside. He currently serves as Pastor of Worship Ministries, where he coordinates with many talented worship leaders and musicians to plan and lead our worship services. He also leads Family Ministries, which oversees children’s and student ministries, ministers to married couples, and guides parents with children at every stage of life. He loves teaching, counseling, mentoring, worshiping, and serving in many ways at Hillside.
In his free time, Paul enjoys spending time with the friends and family, gardening, and tinkering around the house. He and and his wife, Karen, enjoy good friends, an occasional movie, dinner out, and quiet time together. They have two daughters, Rachelle and Kristina.
