Paul Thomas

Connecting Minister

I am so excited to serve as the Group Life Minister - Connecting here at Northwest Bible Church. I love people and it is my desire that everyone at Northwest has opportunities to get plugged into meaningful relationships by growing, serving and worshipping with others. Prior to joining the staff here, I served with Cru in East Asia and at Virginia Tech alongside my amazing wife of 7 years.

I grew up running from the church. My freshman year at Virginia Tech, I accidentally went on a mission trip. Then I shared the Gospel with myself through a tract, and for some reason, at that moment, everything ‘clicked’ and I placed my faith in Christ. God used some guys on my dorm hall that loved me, hung out with me and shared with me, regardless of what I believed, said and did. Because of that, I am passionate about connecting people with real, loving relationships.

My favorite thing to do is to hang out with my wife and make her laugh. I love eating fast food and being active, especially with others. I enjoy good books and most things Star Wars. I am a Hokie (from Virginia Tech). Finally, it blows my mind and is a constant encouragement to read Colossians 1:15-23 and be reminded of God’s pleasure in sending the Son to reconcile us to Himself.
