paul Gotthardt

I’m a Southern guy who’s found a home on the West Coast. I grew up in Savannah, Georgia where I met my wife, Brea, in the college and career class of our church. We’ve been married since 1996 and we’re blessed with two incredible daughters (Shana and Kaylee).


God allowed me to continue my education over the years by receiving a B.A. in world religion from the University of Georgia (1998), a M.DIV in biblical languages from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (2003), and a PhD in Christian Counselling from Adonai University (2009).


In early 2003, God called our family to Las Vegas to start Life Baptist Church. We arrived in Vegas in August of 2003. Less than a month later, we held our first prayer meeting with one other couple at the dining room table. After 14 months of prayerful preparation, Life Baptist Church officially launched on October 3, 2004.

Since that time, God has grown Life into a vibrant community of more than 1,700 people. We’ve been blessed to be a part of planting 13 churches, starting a satellite campus, mentoring church planters, writing Gospel-centered resources that have been translated into 11 languages, and joining in God’s Kingdom activity around the world.


My passion in ministry is learning, writing, and equipping people in the wonders of the Christ-life.
