Interim Senior Pastor
Pastor Paul grew up in Alabama, but graduated from college and seminary in South Carolina. While in college he met Christie, and they were married in 1990. Paul served as a youth pastor in the Atlanta area for nearly eleven years. In 2005 the Whitts moved to Wisconsin where Paul served on the administration of a Christian college, and as Camp Director of a year-round camp in the northwoods. He also worked a year with Cross Impact, a ministry to local churches in helping them reach college campuses with the gospel, and was called to be Associate Pastor at Bethany Baptist Church in May of 2015.
Paul and Christie have three children: Emily, Alex (and Maddie), and Jackson, and a grandson, Walker. In his spare time Paul enjoys playing golf, working in his yard, and cheering for the Alabama Crimson Tide, Atlanta Braves, and the Green Bay Packers. He also enjoys coaching basketball, and has 15 years of experience at the college and high school levels, including being the current varsity boys’ head coach at our local Brevard High School.
