Jesus at the Center

Anslem Paul

Pastor C. Anslem Paul was born the second son of two sons to Elder & Mrs. O. H. Paul, in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, in 1972. At an early age he gave his heart to the Lord and found that his calling was to engage other young people in the ministry of preparing the world for the 2nd coming of Jesus.

He graduated from Oakwood College in 1996 with a degree in Ministerial Theology, while also having matriculated thru the Business Administration Program. Prior to graduating from Oakwood, Pastor Paul had the wonderful opportunity of serving in the South Pacific Division for a year in Australia as an Associate Pastor in the Victoria Conference of Seventh-day Adventist.

Pastor Paul received a call from the Southeastern Conference in 1996. After having matriculated thru both the Master’s of Divinity and the Masters of Youth Ministry programs at Andrew’s University in Berrien Springs, Michigan, and pastoring several churches in Florida and Georgia, Pastor Paul is currently the pastor of the New Hope S. D. A. Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

In 2014, Pastor Paul made a very special “Altar Call” to Ms. Arcinda Massop. She responded to that call by walking down the aisle to become his wife in May of 2015.

Pastor Paul believes that no dream is too big, and that no effort put forth is too great when it comes to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. Creativity, innovation, passion, the power of the Holy Spirit, and knees scuffed up from seasons spent in prayer are what he believes will make the biggest difference in the world around him.
