Pastor Chris Paolini & Rev. Josie Paolini
Happily married for the past 15 years, Pastor and Sis. Paolini began their life together in her native New York Metro area where they served in youth and music ministry at the Manhattan Pentecostal Church. Shortly thereafter, they answered the call to plant a home missions work in Pastor Paolini's hometown of Bourne, MA on the peninsula of Cape Cod. After devoting nine years of their lives to that labor of love, they felt a strong direction to the beautiful city of Idaho Falls, where they were installed as the new pastoral couple at Mountainview Christian Center following Rev. Paul & Sis. Tammy Ramonett's tenure.
Both licensed ministers with the United Pentecostal Church International, the Paolinis have functioned in a variety of ministry roles including Purpose Institute (a weekend Bible college initiative) and Medical Chaplaincy. Pastor Paolini brings a passion for instilling the values of strong Biblical study and discipline and seeks to raise up lay-leaders who seize their God-given calling with confidence. Sis. Paolini is deeply involved in charitable and non-profit work, often working to meet community needs and provide comfort care to individuals in distress.
Together, this couple has entered into their roles at Mountainview with a true joy for the awesome church family they feel is a gift to support and serve.
