Our Story

"After being encouraged to become a church planter for several years, I called a friend of mine in August 2016  who is a pastor in Huntsville and asked him if he knew about any ministry opportunities.  He told me that his presbytery had a vision to plant a church in Scottsboro as there had not been any churches like ours in all of Jackson County.  Though initially hesitant, the Lord began to impress upon my heart and mind in the early hours of the morning thoughts about planting a church in Scottsboro and a heart for Jackson County. After informing my friend of my interest and interviewing with the Mission to North America Committee (which has become the Provisional Session), we visited Scottsboro in January 2017.  We believed the Lord continued to confirm in our hearts that this was His calling for us.  In March 2017, we received a call to plant Redeemer from the committee and by April 2017, we received a full recommendation from the Church Planter Assessment Center.  Soon, we were approved of by Providence Presbytery in May and began raising funds in June of that same year. We have come to love Scottsboro and her people.  We look forward to seeing how God works out His plan to build a PCA church here."        Dieter Paulson
