Congregational Care and Men's Ministries
Pastor Paul Goodman serves in a part time capacity at First Assembly of God, in the areas of Congregational Care and Men’s Ministries. Pastor Goodman and his wife, Floral, moved back to Helena in the summer of 2009, after having been in Billings for twenty years. Pastor Goodman served as District Superintendent for the Montana Assemblies of God and Floral held responsibilities as Women’s Ministries Director. Prior to their time in Billings, the Goodmans were lead pastors at Helena First Assembly for thirteen years.
Pastor James and his gorgeous wife, Hannah, love living the adventurous life that comes with following Jesus. You might find James hunting anything that’s allowed, playing sports involving a ball, riding fast things with motors, or just reading a good book while sipping tea. You might find Hannah singing out loud, playing ultimate frisbee, doing creative things, or hanging with friends while sipping coffee. Together, their Passion is influencing young people to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus! James has served as Youth Pastor at Helena First since 2010 and feels blessed to be a part of such an awesome church family.
