Paul Gullion, Youth Pastor

Paul, Lynn and Elijah have been a part of Sierra Reach Ministries since 2016. After serving as volunteers with both the children and youth ministries, Paul joined the church staff as pastor of Jr. High & High School ministry in March 2019.

I met Lynn met in 1994 while we were both in college. I proposed on Christmas Day of that year and we got married July 29, 1995 while still in college. After our honeymoon we both returned to school fulltime. I graduated from Capital Bible College in 1996 and Lynn finished her B.S. at Sacramento State in 1998.

Through our 23+ years together we have served at three churches in a variety of roles including youth pastor, children’s pastor, evangelism pastor, associate pastor, church planter and elder (no particular order). We have lived in Sacramento and Elk Grove, CA before moving to Katy, TX in 2007.

In 2013, we left the church we planted in Texas and moved back to California, believing God was directing us to Auburn. Lynn is a Placer High School Alumni and we have always loved this area, but life and ministry had taken us in a different direction. We asked God that if Auburn was His will, to provide employment in Auburn, which He did when Lynn was offered a position with Placer County.

We enjoy spending time together as a family. Our hobbies include eating out (I’ll meet you at Taqueria La Herradura any day), and spending time with friends and extended family. We like to camp and spend time outdoors swimming, kayaking, hiking and roasting s’mores.

We love helping others know their identity in Christ, experience the unconditional love of our Heavenly Father and discover their unique strengths and gifts. We are always interested in making new friends and deepening existing relationships. So please say hi and never hesitate to invite yourself over for dinner.
