Paul D. Hoover

Staff Evangelist

Evangelist Paul D. Hoover was our founding pastor. He planted the church on June 1, 1986 in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield. After 6 months God placed on his heart the need for a church in the inner-city of Milwaukee. The church purchased a building at 13th & Juneau. For over 20 years, God blessed this inner-city work. Hundreds were saved and baptized, and a beautiful facility was built. The church remained there until 2007 when we purchased our current property at 3800 S. Howell Avenue in the Bay View community.  Evangelist Hoover is available to preach in your church. You can setup a meeting by contacting the church office (414) 342-1234.
