Paul and Lori have been married for 26 years and have three great kids. Joshua recently started his own company called Media Core and is gifted in creating videos. Jacob just graduated from University of Northwestern and is working for a virtual accounting firm. Rachel is a senior and enjoys nutrition and athletic training.

Paul grew up as a preachers kid in southern MN and surrendered his life to Jesus at a Lowell Lundstrom Crusade. He graduated from Elgin-Millville in 1986 and later attended Northwestern College where he met his amazing wife Lori. After sensing God’s call to ministry, he went to Bethel Seminary and graduated in 1996.
