Pastor Paul Perkins was raised in the home of missionary church planter, Dr. Donald Perkins. He was saved at age eleven and surrendered to preach the Gospel later that year. Pastor Perkins received his Bachelor’s Degree through Louisiana Baptist University and his Master’s Degree from Southern Indiana Baptist College. He has been preaching the gospel for over 30 years.
In August of 2007, after 12 years on the mission field of the Philippines, Pastor Perkins followed the leading of the Lord to become the Pastor here at Grace Independent Baptist Church. Together with his wife Monessa and their five children, they now labor together with this great church to touch lives locally and around the world for the Glory of God.
