Paul, Abbey, Vail, Pilar, Ezekiel, & Amos
Paul and Abbey were married in December of 2006 and immediately moved to the Virginia Beach area to attend seminary. They soon became members of Colonial Baptist Church, and in June of 2009, Paul became an assistant pastor focusing on the youth ministry. Paul attended Virginia Beach Theological Seminary, graduating in 2012 with his Master of Divinity.
Paul will be stepping down from his role as youth pastor in March to transition to Utah.
We are so thankful for the 10+ years we spent on staff at Colonial Baptist Church.
Gospel Grace Church (GGC) is located in downtown Salt Lake City (gospelgrace.com). In the spring of 2017, several families from Gospel Grace partnered with a new leadership team in Riverton, Utah to revitalize an existing church to become Gospel Hope Church. God has blessed this ministry, and we look in faith and hope to our family of churches continuing to partner for the gospel in the valley.
Now, with the growth God has given, GGC is looking to plant a new church! And, they have asked us to come out to lead this plant! The Lord has been so kind in allowing us to partner with a church that is so like-minded in their approach and so faithful in serving Christ.
We are praying about partnering with a few other families from Gospel Grace Church to form a leadership team for the upcoming church plant. GGC have a strong desire to plant a church in Utah, and they have been training men through internships and elder candidacy so that some would be ready to help plant a church. We've been building relationships with a few families at GGC, and it has been really sweet to see how the Lord has brought us together. We're so thankful!
