Paul was born in Augusta, GA, but grew up in Summerville, SC. After graduating from Summerville High School, he attended Clemson University where he majored in Materials Science & Engineering. He spent three summers interning at Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ before realizing that the Lord might be leading him in a different direction.
In his senior year at Clemson, Paul attended an Anglican church that had been planted earlier that year, Christ the Redeemer. There he became interested in both the academic study of Christianity as well as the impact the Gospel message can have in more missional contexts (like church plants and cafetoriums!).
In January of 2017, Paul began working as St. Thomas’ Ministry Intern. So far, he has had the opportunity to study theology with Hamilton, preach on Sunday mornings, and attend and lead small group Bible studies. He is excited to see how the Lord continues to guide and shape him, as well as St. Thomas’ as a whole.
Paul is currently waiting to be granted a security clearance to begin training as a civilian instructor for the Navy Nuclear Propulsion program at the Joint Base here in Charleston. In his time since graduating college, he has gotten to spend two summers on staff at Camp St. Christopher and one fall semester serving in youth ministry at a church in Hartford, England. In his free time, Paul likes to read theology, enjoy good seafood, and spend time with friends.
