Profile image of Paul Mixon

Paul Mixon



Pastor Paul Mixon came to Central Baptist Church in January 2012. He has been married to his wife, Kirsten, since June 2001. Kirsten is his best friend, a wonderful mother and an incredible pastor’s wife.  They love to spend time as a family with their five sons and one daughter: Matthew, Michael, Stephen, Joseph, Jonathan, and Rebekah.

Two of Paul's favorite scriptures are 1 Corinthians 2:9, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him” and Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Before entering into the ministry, Paul never dreamed that God would have called him to minister in many areas of the Americas, Greece, France, England, South Africa, Zambia and the Middle East.

Two of Paul's favorite worship songs are “Come Thou Fount” and “10,000 Reasons”. His favorite biblical character is Peter because Peter was a hesitant follower of Christ until he learned the depths of Christ’s unending love for Him.

For pleasure, Paul enjoys riding his bike, hiking, camping, reading and researching history, building things and spending time with his family.
