Rev. Paul Zimmerman (He/Him)

Pastor Paul graduated from Kansas State University (Go Wildcats!) in 1973 with a bachelor’s degree in Radio/Television Broadcasting.  After working in the Heavy Truck business (sales and service) for about 16 years, he answered his call to full-time ordained ministry.  He graduated from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, MO, a United Methodist Seminary, in 1995 with a Master of Divinity degree.  During that time, he also completed a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education to sharpen his skills in Pastoral care and Chaplaincy.


He is an ordained Elder in the former Missouri West Annual Conference, now the Missouri Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.  He is completing his 30th year being under appointment as a parish pastor.  His hobbies include riding his bicycle on the Katy Trail, and woodworking.
