A loving husband of wife Cheri and father of two, Pastor Paul King gives the voice and direction to the ministry of Lighthouse. As lead pastor, he sets the tone for the Lighthouse family and helps guide the church through the seasons of life. Pastor Paul preaches on Sundays and facilitates the Wednesday night prayer service.

As a native Oregonian, Paul and his family started their ministry career in 2002 when they moved to Atwater, California where he was youth pastor. In 2005 they moved back to his home town of Tigard, Oregon where he was children's pastor. In 2008 Paul and his family moved to Springfield, Missouri where he studied at Evangel University. Paul graduated with a B.S. and a license to pastor. 

Paul has served two churchs and has served at the General Council of the Assembly of God in the children's ministry department as the leadership development coordinator. Following his time at the General Council Paul and his family relocated back to the Pacific Northwest in the summer of 2010 where he was the children's pastor of Lighthouse Christian Center. In December of 2014 Paul and Cheri accepted the position to become the senior pastor of the church.

Some of Paul's passions include spending time with his family, travel, leadership development, Starbucks coffee (Americano with classic syrup and cream), baseball (New York Yankees) and college football (University of Oregon).
