1425 N State St / Batesville AR 72501 / 870-612-7310 / paulnleo85@yahoo.com
My name is Paul Leo, 29 years old and single. I am currently searching for a church that is in need of a pastor. I am attending Batesville Baptist ABA Seminary. Before I was called to preach I was working as a youth leader for my church since May 2009. I answered my call to preach in early 2012 and received my license to preach August 2012 from Berryville First Baptist Church. I have studied under Steve Westbrook my former pastor and great friend whom I still stay in contact with and Jewel Vance my current pastor. Since August 2012 I have been blessed to fill in at several churches when needed. I continue to fill in where needed at any ABA church as I continue my studies at the seminary and while searching for one of God's churches to pastor. I recently moved to Batesville so I could continue study and focus on God's Will for my life. I am a man of integrity and of a good heart, I have a love for God's people and a desire to preach, teach and pastor from the Word of God. I am a firm believer in prayer and believe it is a wonderful way to stay close to Christ and to keep our focus on His Will for our lives. If you are in need of a pastor or just need someone to fill in please call me on my cell phone 870-612-7310.
