Paul Cooper
Life Verse: I Peter 1:3-5
 
God in His kindness blessed Bro. Paul with Godly parents that brought him up in a Christian home. He was saved on January 8,1980, at the age of eight. The Holy Spirit moved in his heart during a Sunday School lesson at Faith Baptist Church in Ohio, and he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. He then submitted to believers baptism by immersion that same month. God again blessed him with his wife, Lisa. They were married on March 20, 1993. God has also blessed them with three wonderful children, Daniel, Emily, and Noah. As Bro. Paul grew in the Lord, he felt the Lord’s leading to a more dedicated service for Him with his life. Shortly after a missions conference at Boulevard Baptist Church in 1999, he surrendered to the Lord for full time service. God used Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, OK, to prepare him for the ministry. He enrolled in August, 2000. During his time at Heartland, he served for two years as Youth Director at Southeast Baptist Church in Tulsa, OK, under the leadership of Pastor Ival Robinson. He also served as a bus captain at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, OK, under the leadership of Pastor Sam Davidson. Bro. Paul joined the staff of Boulevard Baptist Church on June 1, 2005, as the Associate Pastor, Youth Director, and Principal of the Christian School. After years of service at Boulevard he was ordained to the ministry on November 28, 2015, at Boulevard Baptist Church. When the Lord lead Bro. Williams to retire Bro. Paul took the position of Pastor on June 5, 2016
