Founder & CEO – Real Resources
Paul never could have imagined that a volunteer effort as a teenager would turn into a lifetime of ministry. In 1994, while working as the Missions Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church, Paul founded YouthWorks, a non-profit organization designed to provide fun, life-changing, Christ-centered youth mission adventures to young people ages 12-19. Under Paul’s leadership, YouthWorks has grown from a youth missions organization—planning and implementing mission trips and ministry experiences—into a family of ministries that helps the church live out Jesus’ love and mission. Paul and his wife of 30 years, Nan, live in Minneapolis; they have two sons, Drew and Brett. In addition to serving as CEO of Real Resources, Paul is an elder at his local church and volunteers as a leader for YoungLife.
