Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Pastor Paul was a pastoral friend. We were involved in several projects together when I was serving at a nearby church in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. (1993-1997) He was always supportive, helpful and compassionate. God used Him to expose me to some areas of life and ministry where I needed to grow. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. God's grace to all of his family and loved ones. May you know God's comfort and peace during this time. Our sincere condolences, The Jerel Sute family Arlington, TX - Posted by: Jerel Sute (Fellow pastor in Nova Scotia) on: Oct 06, 2017

  • Pastor Paul was our Pastor in the mid 90’s at the Millwood school and the old firehall in Sackville “Gateway”. He was a man of enlightenment filled with compassion that God used mightily to grow and strengthen His church. May the knowledge of him being in the presence of our Heavenly Father give comfort and peace to you Lisa and Joel and all other family member and to all who loved him. - Posted by: Faye Peters (Was my Pastor in the mid 90’s) on: Oct 05, 2017
