The Rev. Dr. J. Paul Board

In November, 1997, Rev. Dr. J. Paul Board came to serve at St. Paul’s. With a vision of service and mission, he has guided a genuinely dedicated congregation in a variety of ministries. There is an understated sense of service to others that has been cultivated and nurtured through his tenure at St. Paul’s.

Paul is married to Lori and they have three children, Sarah, Michael, and Eric. They live in the rectory next to the church.

Paul grew up in Texas and finished high school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He received his B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee (1989). His Master in Divinity comes from Virginia Theological Seminary (1995). His Doctor of Ministry is from the Seabury Theological Institute (Seabury-Western Seminary, 2007).
