Paul J. Hoover

Senior Pastor

Pastor Paul J. Hoover grew up at Souls Harbor. He served as youth pastor at Souls Harbor during his college years, and at Heritage Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas (2012-2014). Paul and his wife moved back to Milwaukee in May 2014. He co-pastored with his father, and was then installed as the senior pastor on September 25, 2016.

On a Sunday night, one month from Paul’s 5th birthday, Dr. Roger Voegtlin was preaching at Souls Harbor. It was during this service that God’s conviction was so great, he walked forward during the invitation. That night he prayed to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior. Two years later, he received assurance of his salvation. While still in elementary school there was a period of time where he doubted his salvation, but he settled those doubts though reading the Bible and taking the Lord at His Word.

Paul is passionate about working with God’s people, and reaching the lost with the Gospel. His life verse is Romans 1:16:

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

Paul and Michelle have three children (Silas, Calloway and Adrian).
