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 airline industry. Having lived and worked in Atlanta, Tampa, and eventually Dallas, TX, he and his wife Rita devoted their lives to Jesus Christ as a response to hearing Bible preaching 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. He has served in multiple roles in the local church including leading discipleship groups, evangelism training, Bible teaching, and 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 of Bismarck. It is through this ministry he became convicted and convinced Christ was calling him to pastor a local church. 

    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. He and Rita have made Port St. Lucie their home as our church strives to reach the Treasure Coast with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
