Pastor Paul was born in South Dakota, grew up in Mississippi and North Carolina(Go Heels!), and came to Wisconsin in 1995 to attend Maranatha Baptist University. He and his wife Keri met at Camp Chetek in '96 and were married in '99. They have lived in the Chetek area ever since other than a year of mission work in southern Texas in 2008. Paul has served in various roles in the church before becoming a full-time elder in 2018. Paul and Keri have nine children and live according to all the stereotypes of a home school family!
