A vibrant, Christian community on the corner of Bardstown Road and Douglass Boulevard, in the heart of Louisville's Highlands.


Join one of St. Paul Church’s teams!

Every child of God possesses a particular gift that has the potential to increase the joy and hope in the world.The ministry and mission at St. Paul does not happen through the efforts of a single person, but instead through many people serving on many teams. Every worship service, every youth group, every dinner is a result of many spirit-filled individuals combining their gifts and working together in order to further develop God’s kingdom. We invite everyone to use the gifts they have been given in a way that increases the vibrancy of the church and spreads God’s light.

If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. – Romans 12:6-8

St. Paul has many teams that serve the church and the city. Every team kicks off their year with a meeting in January, but you can join anytime. Check out what teams are available and reach out to let us know your interest!
