    Dr. Paul Ross

    President, I AM Ministries

    Born and raised in Fredericton NB, Paul graduated from Fredericton High School in 1980 and continued his studies at the University of New Brunswick, where he received his Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Philosophy & Anthropology. In 1987, he received his Masters of Divinity degree.  He completed his doctoral degree in the Spring of 2015 at Acadia Divinity College. Paul and his wife Susan have two children.

    Paul began his ministry in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia, where he was immediately engaged in church growth and building campaign activities.  Since returning to Fredericton in 1996, he has worked to develop strong staff teams and lay leaders and has continued to encourage innovation and growth in the church. "Every member of the church, from the youngest to the oldest, has gifts to bring to our team. The ministry staff's role is to teach, encourage and empower every member of the congregation to make a difference."

    A lifelong athlete, he plays hockey year round and has taken up cycling and golf in the warmer months. He has incorporated this love of sports, his love for God and for ministry with the initiatives of I AM Sports.

    Paul has been Chaplain Ross to the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds hockey team. This work with young athletes is important to Paul, and he uses part of his summer vacation to work as dry-land trainer with Hockey Ministries International. "As I get to know these young athletes, I have a great opportunity to introduce them to Jesus Christ and to help strengthen their relationship with Him. The contacts and friendships built through sports stay with these future leaders for a lifetime, and their faith will do the same. One of our most important jobs as Christian leaders is to be mentors to the next generation."
