Paul left the shores of the Hibiscus Coast bound for the beauty of the Waikato landscape and in particular Northgate Community Church in 2016. 
Married to Lynda, they have served full time in various ministry roles since 2002 when they graduated from Eastwest College in Gordonton.
Paul had served for many years in youth ministry positions and in 2006, moved into an associate role in Orewa. 
Paul has a heart for seeing people come to faith and can normally be found within the community, strengthening the connects he has made there or running around the Indoor Soccer pitch. Paul co-ordinates the Global Leadership Summit in the Waikato and loves to see people find and deepen their leadership potential. He is trained as a Myers Briggs facilitator which he uses with the many people he connects with. 
Paul has always loved sport and photography and before moving into full time ministry, he was a photographer for seven magazines and had his own wedding and studio photography business. Paul was married to Lynda in 1994 and together they have four adult children.
