Paul and Kelli love the local church, and have witnessed the life-changing effects of it.  They met in 2005 at a newcomer’s lunch at Destiny Worship Center when Paul was the young adult pastor at the time.  They married in 2006, and have lived in the Destin area of Florida for 10 years where Paul has served on the Pastoral Staff of Destiny Worship Center.

They have served the local church for over 18 years in both pastoral and support roles.  Whether as youth pastor, young adult pastor, or campus pastor, Paul and Kelli  love what God can do in and through the local church.  In April of 2014 they felt the call of God to plant a life giving church in Floyd County, Indiana.  Paul spent his junior high years in Southern Indiana, and has had family who’ve lived in the area since the early 1990’s.

Pastor Paul desires to see people walking in their God given destiny.  He believes that each of us has been created uniquely by God for such a time as this.  God wastes nothing in our journey of life.  He is the one who can truly redeem a past that is broken, hurting, and seemingly beyond repair.  God wants to redeem us so that we can be ambassadors of redemption to those around us.

Kelli and Paul dream of a life giving church that walks full of faith, hope and love!  Their vision is for Hillside to be an irresistible life giving church where people step into a relationship with God and their lives are transformed.  You can email Pastor Paul at:
