Ryan Paulson

Lead Pastor

I grew up in Orange County, CA., but moved to Colorado when I was 12 years old. I graduated from Colorado State University and met my wife when we were both backpacking guides for Young Life. After serving as a youth pastor and college pastor, I took over as Lead Pastor of South Fellowship in 2012.

I am passionate about helping people live in the way of Jesus with the heart of Jesus. I love teaching the scriptures and giving vision to the church. It gives me great joy to see people transformed by Jesus and communities impacted with the gospel.

I enjoy running, reading, drinking good coffee, and I’m a connoisseur of fine(ish) mexican food.

I have an amazing wife named Kelly and we have three young kids: Ethan, Avery, and Reid.
