Pastor Paul obtained his Masters in Divinity from Gettysburg Seminary in Gettysburg, PA. He received his Doctorate from Chicago Seminary in Chicago, IL. Other degrees he received are Masters in Marriage & Family Counseling from University of Texas in Tyler, TX. 

Pastor Paul started his ministry at Our Saviour's  Lutheran Church in Victoria, TX in June 1979. This is also where he met his beautiful wife, Karen. 

Pastor Paul then ministered to St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Baton Rouge, LA. After that, he ministered at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Tyler, TX. He then made a big move to Lihue Lutheran Church in Hawaii for 18 years. 

Now retiring and moving back to Texas brought Pastor Paul and Karen to Martin Luther Lutheran Church of Coletoville for three years. Will still ministering to us, he is developing a Three Church Co-Op between St. Luke's of Schroeder, Zion Lutheran of Arneckeville and Martin Luther of Coletoville. There are joint services and single services among these three churches. 

We are all so thankful to be blessed with awesome Pastor Paul and his wonderful wife, Karen. Karen is our Music Director. They are both accomplished musicians and greatly enhance our worship services with their talents.
