Paul with a friend from the Shalom Community

Born July 31, 1952 in Champaign, Illinois, Paul was married to Mary and was the father and stepfather of three children. Paul and Mary spent twelve wonderful years ministering in Israel and they often frequented the Hebrew speaking communities all over the country, especially in the north.

Paul had a heart for ministry and loved sharing his love for God with everyone he spoke to. He enjoyed praise and worship music, and talking about his and Mary’s “God” experiences while ministering in Israel. He is warmly remembered by many.

We remember him in prayer, asking that his memory be a source of blessing for many. And we also pray for Mary and their children.
