Pastor Paul DeMerchant
Pastor of Discipleship
Pastor Paul was the youngest child of five siblings, raised on a potato farm in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, where the words like "hard work," "family fun," and "Hockey Night in Canada" were household phrases.
As a teen, he struggled to know God's best for him. Paul enrolled at Kingswood University. While on a missions trip to Europe with a Christian Sports Organization, he realized God was calling him into full-time ministry.
Since graduating in 1989 with a BA in Religion, Paul has enjoyed serving in three different Wesleyan churches with responsibilities in Youth, Assimilation, and Discipleship. He also served at Kingswood University in Student Recruitment and Sports.
Paul loves his wife, Nancy (nee: Horner) and their children, Adam and Alyson, and a good cup of coffee! Pastor Paul' s responsibilities at RWC are Superintendent of Sunday school, Small Group Ministries, Children's Ministries, Membership and Baptisms and other areas of Discipleship.
