Paul is one of our Associate Ministers. His particular responsibilities include ministry among students. He is married to Karen, and they have two children.
How did you become a Christian?
My mum and dad are Christians and taught me about Jesus from a young age. Through involvement in youth groups and Christian holiday clubs I learned more about the gospel and became convinced it was true. Jesus opened my eyes to see him for who he really is, and I put my trust in him.
How did you come to Christ Church Central?
I was part of the initial planning team for Christ Church Central, back when it was planted from Christ Church Fulwood – so I’ve been involved with things from the start! At the time I was working as a teacher, but later reduced my hours so that I could work part-time for the church, before spending three years at Oak Hill College training for ministry. Karen and I returned – with Hannah – in 2010, and Jonathan has since been added to our family.
Besides Jesus, what are you passionate about?
I like all sports and am a keen supporter of Liverpool Football Club – which makes for an interesting household as Karen is an Arsenal fan!
I also love cooking and messing around with power tools. But not necessarily at the same time…
