_MG_1756Paul was born and raised in the small town of Wilson, North Carolina – home of the best pulled pork barbecue you will ever taste. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008, he moved up to Lynchburg to attend Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, where he completed his Master of Divinity in 2011.

Paul came onboard with LivingProof in August of 2010, and currently serves as the Worship Pastor for Student Ministries. He has a passion to see students come to know Christ, grow in their relationship with Him and realize their full potential in Him.  He loves to teach students about and lead students in the worship of our great God and King.

Paul loves to play a variety of instruments, take road trips, ride roller coasters, and do anything and everything sports. He is a diehard Tar Heel fan, and thinks March Madness is the best season of the year. Paul married the love of his life, Jenny, on July 6, 2012.
