A common thread links Paul McCart’s endeavors as the pastor at Parkside Church: a genuine desire to help people find life in Christ, grow their faith, and change the trajectory of church members’ lives for the better, along with supporting the community in which he lives.
This thread was first sown during Pastor Paul’s first role as a Youth Pastor at Little Log Church in Palmer Lake, Colorado, during which time he concurrently started his Master of Divinity program at Denver Seminary. Within a year Paul accepted an opportunity closer to Denver as a Youth Pastor at Christ Community Covenant Church. Here, he was able to pursue some new ministerial work in addition to the responsibilities he had previously had at Little Log.
At Christ Community Covenant Church, Pastor Paul focused on creating discipleship and internship programs, leading missions trips, and finding innovative, fun, and high-energy ways to foster the discussion and understanding of faith within youth groups. Under Pastor Paul McCart’s leadership, the youth ministry at Christ Community Covenant Church grew from 20 junior and senior high students to over 100 in three years.
