Pastor Paul Goodridge was born and raised in London, England. He emigrated to the United States in his late teens and settled in New York City. His deep sense of calling to ministry led him to Oakwood University (College at the time) where he graduated with a degree in Ministerial Theology and a minor in Communications. He later graduated from the Andrews University Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary with a Master degree in Divinity.
Pastor Goodridge has served as a pastor in the Northeastern Conference, Southeastern, and now South Central Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Currently he serves as an Associate Pastor of the Oakwood University Church in Huntsville, AL. His passion for teaching is reflected in his serving as an adjunct professor in the School of Religion at Oakwood University and his teaching GED and ESOL classes while in Florida. Last year he taught 10th grade Bible at Oakwood Adventist Academy.
