Presentation Abstract

With the majority of North American churches in decline, the role of the local church pastor is as difficult as it has ever been. Clergy suffer from obesity, hypertension and depression at rates higher than the average American, and turnover is high. This film follows the struggle of a millennial pastor leading a small church district in an economically depressed city in the South, while exploring a handful of leaders who have managed to turn around their dying churches.

Paul completed his MFA from the American University in Washington, DC where he also served as a graduate fellow in the Center for Social Media through a grant from the Ford Foundation.

He is the founder of a unique undergraduate documentary film program which combines the best of the fine arts and photography traditions with the emerging documentary film movement. Currently, Paul serves as the chair of the Department of Visual Art, Communication & Design at Andrews University. (Bio adapted from Academia.edu).
