- Paul Reichman serves Risen Church as our Lead Pastor. Paul grew up as a missionary kid who split his time between Alaska and Minnesota. After high school, Paul traded the igloos of Alaska for the beaches of Southern California, and graduated with a degree in Biblical Exposition from The Master’s University in Santa Clarita, CA. After college Paul met his wife, Jaime, while both were serving as summer missionaries. They were married in 2001. Paul then served as a youth pastor for four years in California before moving with Jaime to Russia to serve as church planters. In 2009, Paul and Jaime moved to Minneapolis. Jaime is a Canadian-born American whose favorite country is the Heavenly one to come. Jaime loves reading old saints, snowboarding, loud music, good sermons, and talking about Jesus. Paul loves the Bible, biking, kayaking, Twins baseball, spending time with Jaime and their foster children, and anything that involves people.
