Our Staff

The Peace with Christ staff is here to serve and walk alongside you. We have a passion to help you grow in your relationship with God and your relationships with people inside and outside of church.



Rev. Dr. Michael Paulison


Pastor Mike was raised in Northern New Jersey. He was raised Lutheran and then left the church after confirmation. A spiritual experience brought him back to the church at 18 years old. After that experience he began not only his schooling for the ministry, but also serving God right away in various ministries. He has served in a street ministry in Brooklyn, New York, led ministry teams at Concordia College in Bronxville, New York, ministered with a Christian Ministry in a National Parks, and has always been very engaged in ministry to the poor and outcast. He is a graduate of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri and received his Doctorate in 2012 at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA. He has three beautiful daughters: Abigail, Madison, and McKenzie. He remarried on October 7, 2017 to Ellie, an LCMS trained DCE and Worship Leader.


He began his pastoral ministry in 1990 in a traditional model church in Sterling, Colorado. He pastored there for 12 years and saw amazing growth for a rural community. The worship attendance grew and the ministry greatly expanded. Then in 2001 he left to start a new journey, accepting the call from Peace with Christ to begin The Experience, which for over 10 years operated as a church within a church at Peace with Christ. The Experience was a mission- oriented church that aimed younger unchurched people. In 2014 after being involved in mission trips for over 20 years, Pastor Mike founded Mission Experience. Mission Experience operates as an orphanage in Haiti and now is planning to build a school, medical clinic and a business job center. By 2016, Mission Experience became a full-time call and The Experience became the Acts church after combining with Cross with Christ Lutheran church.


Pastor Paulison has been a presenter for Pastoral Leadership Institute (PLI) and at various other conferences. He teaches on “Ministry in a Post Modern Culture”, “Globalization”, “Missional Thinking and Living”, and “Leadership in a Post Modern marketplace.” His ministry is not to just call the church to renewal, but a new radical way of thinking and ministry. Pastor Mike will be serving us at Peace with Christ as our vacancy pastor until God calls the next full-time pastor here. He is here three weeks out of the month and is typically in Haiti every other month.
