Paul is the founder of the Northern Christian Alliance, an organization working and praying together to present the message of Jesus Christ, strengthen churches, and positively affect the culture of Wisconsin and the north.
He is author of the book "The Last One Standing", which is a great read for anyone looking to be inspired and see the vision and drive that he has to see God's church thrive in today's culture.
While Paul is an avid outdoorsmen and is passionate about hunting, fishing and camping, his true passion lies in seeing souls saved and lives transformed for the kingdom of God. Devoting his life to preaching the gospel, he is a true encourager, building up and challenging God’s church to see the kingdom of Heaven advanced.
