Pastor Paul Taylor and his wife, Farrah, founded Rivers Crossing in 2007. What started with a few families turned into a fast-growing community with two locations in the Cincinnati area and an online campus that reaches people across the world.
Paul and Farrah’s passion is to share Jesus with people far from God, plant churches, invest in pastors, and equip other churches to reach their cities.
As a pastor’s kid in Rome, GA, Paul grew up hearing about Jesus. But as he went on to play football at the University of Georgia, he found himself far from God.
At 21 years old, just as his choices were unraveling his life, Paul had a radical, life-changing encounter with Jesus.
He met Farrah at an Athletes in Action conference and, before long, they were married and beginning their ministry journey. In 2001, the Taylors responded to God’s call to move to Farrah’s hometown of Cincinnati, where they raised four wonderful children: Alexandria, Gavin, Ansley, and Eli.
He also serves as the Midwest Director of the Excel Leadership Network and is an experienced church planter who has invested in more than 30 new churches locally and globally. Above all, he’s an evangelist at his core.
Pastor Paul is passionate about balance—balancing Word and Spirit, grace and truth.
Pastor Paul is husband to Farrah and a father of four.
