Pastor Paul King
Hi, I am Paul King, pastor of Arise Christian Fellowship. I would love to get acquainted and share with you the love and joy and peace and power of Jesus—the Risen Life of Christ!
To let you know a lit bit about myself, I have been married 43+ years to the most wonderful, most patient, most understanding woman—Kathy! Kathy loves to work with children and helps with our children’s ministry at Arise Christian Fellowship. We have two adult children who love and serve God—Sarah (in Tulsa, OK) and Chris (in Memphis, TN)—who are both married We are blessed with 5 grandchildren.
I have been in ministry for more than 48 years, as a pastor, university professor and administrator, church planter, Young Life leader, Christian school administrator, ministry and leadership consultant, conference speaker, and much more! I love to teach the Word of God, to lead and mentor people into a higher life in Christ, and to equip every believer for ministry. I have two earned doctorates—a Doctor of Theology from the University of South Africa and a Doctor of Ministry from Oral Roberts University—but you don’t have to call me Doctor! Just call me Paul or Pastor Paul.
When I was 12 years old God called me to ministry and communicating His truth through writing. I love to write, and have authored 12 books—including books on the Higher Christian Life, healing, spiritual warfare, the Holy Spirit, faith, finding your purpose and calling in life, and more! You can find out more about me and my ministries and books at www.paulkingministries.com, or just come visit Arise Christian Fellowship!
