About Paul

I believe God has called me to help others live out their God-given dreams. I’ve been blessed to be able to do this with my wife Jennifer and our 3 children, through OurChurch.com (which helps Christians live out their mission online), life groups, missions trips, blogging, coaching and mentoring.

While my relationship with God has been most influenced by my parents, family, close friends, and lots of faith-stretching experiences with God, these books have influenced my journey as well:

The Bible
Mere Christianity –C.S. Lewis
Experiencing God -Henry Blackaby
The Purpose Driven Life –Rick Warren
Blue like Jazz – Donald Miller

From Eternity to Here -Frank Viola
To Transform a City -Eric Swanson, Sam Williams
Less Clutter, Less Noise -Kem Meyer
