Paul Barreca is the Senior Pastor of Faith Bible Church in Vineland, NJ. His primary responsibilities are teaching and church leadership. Pastor Paul came to Vineland in 2002. He and his wife Kim have three children and five grandchildren.
Pastor Paul sensed the Lord’s leading into the pastoral ministry while he was a teen. He began full time ministry at the age of 21 and has been serving as a pastor ever since that time. He produces “Today’s Word,” a daily radio program discussing devotional thoughts and current events related to the Christian faith. He published “Foundation for the Faith,” a 32 lesson discipleship curriculum for new believers. This material is in use at Faith Bible Church and through several of our church missionaries. It has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese and Tagalog.
Pastor Paul is deeply passionate about world missions. He frequently teaches at Word of Life Bible Institute in the Philippines and has led numerous missionary trips in Europe, Africa, Central America, South America, the Bahamas and the Philippines. Paul serves as the vice-president of the Board for Fellowship International Mission. He also serves on the advisory board of The Alliance for Biblical Integrity.
His passion is to preach the Scriptures and build up the body of Christ. An avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast, Pastor Paul developed the men’s camping ministry at FBC and has led numerous trips to the unspoiled lakes and trails of the Canadian wilderness. Pastor Paul is a graduate of Word of Life Bible Institute, Lancaster Bible College, and Michigan Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters Degree in Theological Studies. He recently earned the Doctor of Ministry degree at Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible Seminary) in Clarks Summit, PA.
