Adult Ministries Pastoroffice: 317-773-2233 ext. 130

Paul initially joined the White River staff as the Special Needs Pastor. While the Special Needs community is still close to his heart and will forever be a focus of his own volunteerism and service, Paul now serves as White River's Faith Development team lead and Adult Ministries Pastor for the Noblesville location. He partners with and pastors to the men’s, women’s, 50+, marriage/divorce, specialized support, and life groups at White River.  Paul joins each of these groups with the church’s faith development focus and mission of connecting every life to Jesus.  A lot of his time is spent connecting adults to groups, other members, and resources that aid in their personal and spiritual development and connectedness. He is very excited to grow the church’s ability to make a large congregation feel small by creating opportunities for everyone to connect and be discipled. 

Paul, his wife Jen, and his youngest son Shaun, live in Lapel. If they are not home, you can find them in the woods, on the lake, or in the mountains creating another adventure for themselves. 

Hobbies: hiking, fishing, coaching, traveling with Jen and mentoring local youth.
