Reverend Paul Sherwood

The Presbyterian Church was a large part of the childhood development for Paul Sherwood.  He and his family experienced regular attendance on Sundays, as well as participating in Scouting, choirs, and youth groups.  His sense of faith in Jesus Christ was confirmed at a college chapel service.  Wherever he has lived, he sought a church for opportunities of worship and service.  After college graduation, he pursued a career in engineering and manufacturing for several years.  He was called to a position as the Director of Administration at First Presbyterian Church in Marietta, Georgia. While serving in this position, he sensed a call to pastoral ministry and graduated from seminary after five years of study.  Paul served as Associate Pastor at Reid Memorial Church in Augusta, Georgia and as Pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Athens, Texas, before coming to Oakmont.  He plans to work with the congregation of Oakmont Church to continue faithful worship and service in the Hoover community, while inviting others to know Jesus Christ. He believes that ‘loving people’ is the most important work God gives us.
