Paul and Melanie have been in full-time pastoral ministry since 1994.  In 2008, they planted TEN27 Church and serve as the Founding and Sr. Pastors. They met at Azusa Pacific University where they both received their undergraduate and their Masters Degrees.

In addition to pastoring, Paul is a professor at Azusa Pacific University, teaching with the Department of Psychology. He teaches on Saturday mornings at TEN27 Men while working on his PhD in Advanced Studies in Human Behavior. Melanie is on the Sunday teaching team, leads worship, teaches Friday mornings at Sisterhood, and is the Chaplain at Linfield Christian High School in Temecula, California. In addition, they both guest lead and speak at other churches, conferences and retreats.

Paul and Melanie have been married since 1994 and have four kids. Their biggest blessing is being able to minister together as a family, reach their community for Jesus, and build the Kingdom of God.
