Paul is a husband to Karen, father of Chris and Jennifer, and father-in-law to Shannon and Jeremy. He is "Poppie" to Ashlee, Zoe, Hannah, Luke, Noah, Elizabeth, and Josiah. He loves Jesus and has a passion for healthy churches. Paul studied at Azusa Pacific University, Eastern Baptist and Golden Gate Theological Seminaries. He authored JumpStart Mentor Training as a tool to help Christ followers discover their productive place in the Body of Christ. In his role as Transitional Pastor, Paul's prayer is to help The Hill evaluate where they have been, see clearly where they are, and envision where God is leading them. Paul covets your prayers as we take this journey of discovery together.
"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done."
— Psalm 78:4
Next Gen Pastor
Hi, I'm Karin. I’m the Next Generation Pastor here at Church on The Hill. I started here 15 years ago as the Children’s Pastor and have been serving ever since. I'm a transplant from the Chicagoland area who made Southern California home when I married my husband, Alex. He and I live in Riverside with our dog, Watson. I went to school in Illinois, obtained my BA in Sociology and then worked in the social services/nonprofit arena for several years while volunteering at my local church. God then called me to vocational ministry and I went to seminary at Dallas Theological Seminary, graduating in 2003 with a MaCE. I was ordained in 2018. In 2017, I became the Next Generation Pastor here and now have the opportunity to work with a great staff and awesome volunteers, overseeing our ministry from birth through to young adults. I also get to lead a women’s bible study every Friday. When I’m not working, I love music, art, reading books and drinking coffee with friends.
