• Paul heppner

    interim pastor

    Paul just started at JBF in June 2019. He has over 23 years of full-time ministry experience, including starting two churches. Now he specializes in helping churches optimize their ministries during the transition from one pastor to the next.

    Paul and Peggy enjoy hiking, biking and camping together. Otherwise, you will probably find Paul in his shop tinkering with a project or flying RC aircraft.
