Our Senior Pastor Jonn Paul was born and raised on a family farm in rural North Dakota. He studied Aviation Maintenance Technology in college and worked 16 years in the Commercial Aviation Industry. Having lived and worked in Atlanta, Tampa, and eventually Dallas, TX, He and his wife Rita both devoted their lives to Christ as a result of hearing Bible teaching on the radio.
Desiring to serve his local church, Jonn attended undergraduate classes at Moody Bible Institute and eventually Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned his Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies. Jonn has served in multiple capacities in the local church including leading discipleship groups, evangelism training, Bible teaching, and serving in prayer and media ministries.
Jonn and Rita also served as missionaries over a 5 year period when Jonn returned to his home state of North Dakota establishing an evangelism and discipleship outreach to elected officials in the State Capitol in Bismarck. It is during this period he became convinced of Christ’s call for him to pastor.
Jonn was ordained by Denton Bible Church (Denton, TX) in 2009 and accepted a call as Senior Pastor of Port St. Lucie Bible Church in early 2014. It is here where he and Rita have now made their home to reach the Treasure Coast of South Florida with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
