Paul Lapsley

Bi-vocational, Paul and Liz co-pastor The People Church. Originally Britt’s Paul spent twelve years pioneering a UK social justice charity. Initially focused on supporting women in the sex industry the charity grew to house a wide range of projects, programs and services including: supporting sexually exploited children; counseling, drug and alcohol teams, sexual exploitation prevention and drug awareness school initiatives. As managing director, Paul never stopped working with people on the ground. Now in Canada at The People Church, Paul continues to hold directional perspective and vision. A powerful storyteller with a wicked sense of humor, Paul loves Jesus and his mission- you can just tell. What you see is what you get with Paul whether that’s at work making custom staircases or leading The People Church. Rough edges, messy lives, and sometimes pretty tough when it comes to religiosity and churchianity, Paul’s missionary heart loves to see transforming lives impact the community.
