My name is Paul Gwinn and I have served at Central Baptist since April of 2002. I first came as Minister of Students, but in September of 2008 I became the Minister of Education/Admin.

My favorite verse is Psalms 37:4. I am married to Jacinda, she is a 5th grade math teacher at Baker Knooce Elementary. We have 3 children - Brianna, Savanna, and Andrew. Our kids keep us busy with all of their activities and we enjoy

every one of them.

The best part of being here at Central Baptist is serving with the best church family around!
