The Lord gives strength to his people; The Lord blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11
Pastor – Paul Hannola
Pastor Paul and his wife Karen have been at Good Shepherd Community Church since September 2016. They feel blessed to be in our nation’s capital, surrounded by beautiful mountains and high country on one side with the superb south coast on the other, and among blessed people in the middle, living to be a blessing to the community. They are excited about God’s power and purpose in everyday people who are in relationship with an extraordinary God.
Pastor Paul is qualified in theology and ministry (as well as environmental management, specialising in forestry) and is an ordained pastor of the Lutheran Church of Australia. He currently serves as a full-time pastor and describes his purpose as simply 'to refer another to Another'.
He adds, 'The power and presence of Jesus Christ is real, mighty to save and always available to all people. I affirm the importance of a Christo-centric, Spirit-filled, Bible-based practical ministry'.
Why not make yourself known to him? He would love to have a cuppa and a chat. Contact Pastor Paul.
