Paul Nawlin – Pastor

Pastor Paul NawlinWelcome to our website. We trust that you will find information that will be helpful. Come by and see us at First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee, Florida.

My name is Paul Nawlin. I am number nine of ten kids (5 girls and 5 boys) from Opp, Alabama. The Lord blessed us with parents that know the Lord and raised us up with the reality of knowing and serving Jesus Christ.

I was saved (born again) at 18 years old in 1983 and called to preach in 1984. I must confess and say these years of my life and ministry have been filled with God’s blessings and grace. There have been challenges but Jesus has been more than enough.

God gave me the young lady that was made for me, Brenda Peavy. After over 32 years of marriage, 3 children (Beverly, Benjamin and Nathan) and 10 grandchildren, we are still amazed at God’s goodness.

I pastored in Alabama until moving to Florida in 2002.

I have been in various types of ministry: radio, TV, nursing home, schools, missions and prisons. I’m also founder and director of Character Education Now. (, take a look)

We are excited to be at First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee. We look forward to pastoring and serving our Lord til He comes. Come and visit with us.
