Paul moved to the West Midlands in 1988, from Newcastle upon Tyne, as a result of a promotion within the Bank that he then worked for.
Paul has been as Elim Minister since 2002, having previously served as Associate Pastor in Tamworth for 10 years, before taking up the pastorate of Ward End Elim Church in 2012.
In 2018 Paul left the Ward End Church to take up the post of a full time Prison Chaplain where he continues to serve believing that lives can be dramatically changed through the power of the Gospel. Paul is married to June, they have 2 adult children (Craig & Ruth) and 3 grandchildren. Craig and his wife Jo and their children live in Australia so their long distant holidays are sorted!! Paul is a passionate supporter of Newcastle United and looks forward to the day they become Premier League Champions!!
