Paul (Hipolito) is a proud Texas native, but has lived in California, Colorado, Indiana, and Ohio. He and his wife moved to Plant City in August 2021, but the fact that all six of their grandchildren are close by had nothing to do with their decision. He is our new Intake/Referral Specialist. Paul has had a dual career in ministry and social work, earning his master’s degree in Human Services/Marriage and Family Counseling. In addition to serving as a pastor he has been a music teacher, truancy officer, prevention educator, and social worker. Paul is excited about this opportunity to serve this awesome community. ¡Yo hablo español y tejano!
