Hope Church Leadership
Hope Church is led by our Pastors, Paul and Vivian Malson, our worship leader Robert Fillingim and a leadership team. The leadership team is three men who have demonstrated a heart for the Lord and a commitment to making Hope Church grow in presence and effectiveness in ministry in to the community.
Pastor Paul, and his wife Pastor Vivian, founded Hope Church in 2015. They bring years of experience, but most importantly, a love for Jesus Christ and a desire to see Jesus transform lives and the Emerald Coast.
Pastor Paul has served churches in Texas, Indiana and Florida since 1984. He and Vivian have planted four churches, their first in 1992.
Pastor Paul graduated from Southwestern University in 1986 with a B.A. with areas of concentration in Business, Music, History, Philosophy and Religion. He earned a master's degree in Preaching and Leadership from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY in 1990.
Pastor Paul is a Texan... ask him. He'll smile and tell you. But the most important aspects of his life is his family. His wife Vivian (married in 1989), their daugher Amber (and her husband Justin) and their son Robert (and his wife Ciara). They are especially proud of the three most beautiful granddaughters in the world.
