PASTORAL TEAM

Craig McGlassion - Lead Pastor

Craig McGlassion - Lead Pastor

Craig McGlassion is the lead pastor of Paradox Church and has been here since it started. Craig often shares that his favorite thing about Paradox is how the church really embodies the motto, “come as you are, no perfect people allowed.” It’s an environment of grace in which we grow and change, not an environment of criticism and judgement. The verse that really drove Craig to start the church was a verse he read in the Bible in the book of Nehemiah 7:6, “these are the people who came up from the captivity of the exile”. Through that verse, God gave him a vision of a church that would reach people far from the heart, knowledge and experience of God.

In his free time Craig likes to . . . HA HA. He has three young kids; he doesn’t have any free time! But when Craig is having fun outside of work he is usually snowboarding, mountain biking, running or hunting, or doing anything with his greatest passion: his family, wife Nicole, son Tobin and twin daughters, Joslyn and Corinne.

Tom is a pastor, is the leader of Paradox’s Creative Arts Ministry, and has been with Paradox since 2009. He leads a team of music leaders, graphic designers, production technicians and creates most of the videos for Paradox. His passion is to make much of Jesus and to help create church services where imperfect people can “come as they are.” He and his wife Jenna have two little girls who do their best to keep their parents running around in a cloud of pink ribbons, bows, and Disney music. Tom can usually be found laughing loudly during one of his amazing ADD moments backstage or in one of the hallways of Paradox.
