Paul Duppenthaler

Senior Pastor

Pastor Paul has a love for the Word of God and His people.  He’s a lifelong learner with degrees from Stanford, Fuller Seminary, and a Doctorate under RC Sproul at Ligonier Academy. Paul is known for communicating scripture in a very personal and understandable way that makes the Bible very relevant for today.  Paul founded Countryside all the way back in 1993. He and his wife Kris have raised their 4 kids in Sherwood and are an integral part of the community.  He has a heart for local ministries of compassion as well as making a difference in global missions.  Paul fills his limited free time with cycling, guitar playing, and hanging out with friends and family.
