MEET OUR TEAM

Paul Irminger
LEAD
PASTOR

Paul is originally from Naples, FL. Paul and his wife Tia have been in full-time ministry up north since he graduated from Toccoa Falls College in 2004. It was during their time serving at Union Chapel in Muncie, Indiana (2012-2016) that they felt the call into church planting. In 2016 with their three daughters and one month old son, the Irmingers made the move back down to SWFL.

Their family is passionate about carrying the love and compassion of Christ into our community.
