About Jeff

Staff Pictures - Jeff PaulsI was born and raised in Abbotsford, and began attending South Abbotsford Church in my grade 12 year.  I married Sheralyn in 1996 and we now have four children.  I began on staff in June of 2016 as the Production & Communications Lead.

I was studying and working as an accountant until 2005, when God called our family to attend Hillsong International Leadership College in Sydney, Australia where I studied Worship & Creative Arts and Church Leadership.  We spent four years overseas, deepening our faith and understanding of God and the full and abundant life He has called us to lead.  I felt called to ministry but didn't know what that looked like for our family, and so upon returning to Canada I found myself back in the accounting and business world until starting at South Abbotsford Church.

My family and I returned to South Abbotsford Church in 2014 and have enjoyed getting involved in various ministries here.  I am passionate about expressing and encouraging authentic worship using music, media and the creative arts.  I strive to bring excellence in all we do to glorify God and build His Church.

I enjoy going to movies, camping, biking, kayaking and writing music.
