Director of the Prayer Ministry

Paul was born and raised in the Sacramento, California area. At the age of 21, he came back to Jesus and started reading his Bible, where in the first two chapters of Genesis, the Lord revealed to him that He still heals today. After receiving his own physical healing, Paul then witnessed three healings of people for whom he had directly prayed. After those life-changing events, he decided he would dedicate his life to full-time ministry. He moved to Redding, California and studied three years with Bethel Healing Rooms. During his time with Bethel, he also served in Madrid, Spain, where he worked with a school that filmed and documented God’s supernatural power. While in Spain, God told him that his next stop would be to move to Tennessee to work for Eagle Rock. 


Since moving to Tennessee, Paul has married his best friend Annie (who he met while at Bethel) and also founded the Eagle Rock Healing Rooms. Through the Healing Rooms, Paul and the Eagle Rock team have had the honor of praying over hundreds of people and have witnessed many miracles. In his free time, Paul enjoys visiting coffee shops, watching football, exploring new cities, and spending time with his wife Annie.
