Paul Rhoads

Executive Director

Paul pastored on the staff of a large church in Long Beach, CA for eighteen years. His ministry experience includes children, college and adult ministry, evangelism and discipleship, and finally chief of staff. For the past almost eighteen years Paul served with CRM (Church Resource Ministries), an interdenominational mission agency focused on leadership development for the Church worldwide. Once again he served in a variety of roles, most recently as Executive Vice-President in charge of field ministry (350+ missionaries in 25 countries around the world).

Paul’s core passion for the one-on-one spiritual mentoring and coaching of leaders emerges out of his own spiritual journey. He longs to see leaders step into the fullness of who they were created and called to be as they learn to live out a holistic Gospel. On occasion he consults with organizations and churches, facilitates a variety of training experiences, and does conflict resolution. His primary ministry now is leading SoulFormation as the Executive Director and meeting with about 40 leaders per month in Spiritual Direction. He has a BA in Biblical Literature from Multnomah University, Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology and did two years of additional graduate work at UCLA in the languages of the Ancient Near East. Paul has been married to Becky for 40+ years; they have two adult children, a son-in-law, and two grandchildren.
