Ministry and Support Staff

  • Rev. Paul Zazzo, Lead Pastor

    Paul’s deepest passion is helping others find freedom in Christ to love, serve and live on mission with God in their communities and around the world.  A native of South Jersey, Paul has served in pastoral ministry for over 25 years in California, Delaware, New Jersey, and most recently as the Dean of Students at Missio Seminary in Philadelphia. 

     Paul earned degrees in Bible and Christian Education at Taylor University before getting a Masters in Counseling at Philadelphia Biblical University (Cairn) and a Master of Divinity from Biblical Theological Seminary.  He is a rabid fan of all major Philadelphia sports, and enjoys travel, good (and bad) movies, and reading, and has recently taken up golf which has added great joy and a significant amount of frustration to his life.


    Paul and his wife of over 20 years, Samantha, live in Eastampton along with their two children, Alexandra (17) and Paul (16).  They have two mouthy cats and a large beast of a dog named Louie, who is also Paul’s best bud. You can email Paul at pdzazzo@gmail.com.
