Pastor Paul Leboutillier is a wise, mature and seasoned saint and between training sessions in Boise, Idaho he sat down with Mike for a conversation about the difference between self awareness and self obsession, being thrown Into the deep end of ministry way too young, and how he is handling being an unlikely YouTube celebrity. 


 Pastor Paul Leboutillier has been the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Ontario, Oregon for 32 years and is close to completing his third time through the entire Bible teaching verse by verse.   A significant increase in curiosity and online searching for Bible teachings took place during the pandemic as the world dealt with major disruptions in life and, for some, the inability to attend church services. This led to many around the world discovering Pastor Paul’s teachings. His recorded and live teachings have been watched on YouTube over 31 million times with well over 150,000 subscribers. 

Pastor Paul and his wife, Sue, have been married 44 years and have four grown children and 6 grandchildren.
