I was born and raised in the piney woods of East Texas. I had a pretty normal childhood I guess, whatever normal is. I had good times and bad, got into some things I should’ve stayed out of, made good choices and bad ones, had friends and family, asked the same questions about life and love and all the above that most everyone else has asked at one time or another. Then something happened that radically changed my life and my course forever. When I was 22 years old I put my faith in Jesus  Christ. I’m not a super saint or anything, I’m not “holier than thou”, I’m just a normal guy who trusts Jesus and I’m committed to following Him.

My wife, Brandi, and I were married in July, 1995 and we have three kids. We currently live in Northwest Arkansas where I serve as the Lead Pastor of  the First Baptist Church of Garfield. I also serve as a director for Cross Vision International Missions and have a BA in Religion/Ministry from Luther Rice University. I love to see people come to know Christ and grow in their relationship with Him. I also like to read a lot, and I play lead guitar for a Christian praise band called Jericho Down.

I hope that you’ll read something here that will encourage you and somehow draw you closer to Jesus.

In Christ, Paul
