Legacy : Paul Bowman 5-11-14

Paul Bowman,

Recreation/Children’s Pastor

A native of Muskogee, Oklahoma, Paul Bowman has been in ministry since 1992 when he graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After having served at churches in east and west Tennessee, He and his family are moving to Maypearl from Lebanon, Missouri. His wife of 24 years, Margie, is mom to Hannah, 21 who attends Northeastern State University in Tallequah, OK; Luke, 16, a sophomore; Sarah, 14, an 8th grader, and Rachel, 10, a 5th grader.

Paul began at FBC Maypearl in August as the new Recreation/Children’s Pastor and will be in charge of new ministries such as a monthly Kidventure – a monthly event to which children in 1st through 6th grades can invite their friends. “It’s all about relationship-building,” Bowman said. There will also be a new recreation ministry for Kindergarteners through 6th graders – Upward Basketball. It’s a basketball program for the winter months which involves not only basketball fundamentals, but also devotionals and Christian fundamentals. Upward Basketball is a huge ministry which was started by a friend of Paul’s from South Carolina with just 30 churches. Now the ministry is in more than 500 churches.

Paul will be assessing the recreation ministry needs for all ages and is eager to hear from members about suggestions for recreation ministry ideas.

Matthew 5:16 is Paul’s life verse: “In the same way, let your light so shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (ESV)
