Rev. Dr. Paul Moon
Dr. Paul Moon is an Organization and Leadership Development Strategist. He coaches pastors and provides consultation for churches as combining his backgrounds as a pastor (2002-present), a CEO at an IT consulting company (1989-2004), and a research engineer (1986-1989) for cutting-edge military high-tech applications.
- He became CEO at Hypercom in 1989 and provided IT consulting services to Fortune 500 companies, including Samsung and LG, for their eBusiness launch and innovative solutions.
- He founded ChurchParadigm in 2000, which became LeadershipEdges in 2017, and helped more than 1,000 leaders of religious and non-profit organizations become proactive about meeting emerging needs in the digital age (2000-present).
- He had served local congregations for fifteen years in New York and its areas (2002-2017). His trend tracking analysis and plausible future scenario extrapolation did not just appear in his paper as he brought them into action in the form of new community development initiatives to reach out to diverse young people in the metropolitan areas.
He received his Doctor of Ministry and Master of Divinity from Drew Theological Seminary with a concentration in postmodern evangelism and congregational development. His doctoral project and dissertation on the “Postmodern Approach to Spiritual Formation Journey with Young People” won the Robert Duncan Jr. prize for its creativity and innovations.
He earned his master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technologies and completed his B.S. in Computer Science and B.E. in Electrical Engineering at Stony Brook University.
The connection between churches and their communities is increasingly digital in nature. Our culture is undergoing a digital revolution that requires far more than simply a nice-looking website and a modest Facebook presence.
We need a game-changer! Paul holds a series of nation-wide seminars focus on a framework for Disruptive Ministry Diffusion, a process of how to ignite a church through the Minimum Viable Ministry and what challenges churches are facing to overcome during the process.
