Pastor Paul Broussard

Paul Broussard has served in various positions of church ministry throughout his pastoral career. Being a pastor he understands the pressure and struggles of ministry. When great tragedy and loss hit Paul’s life, the realization had set in that there was no place a senior pastor could go for healing, openness, and unconditional love in a safe environment. It wasn’t until the Lord led him to Living Waters Ministry that God healed his heart, restored his soul, and shifted his calling. Paul now serves on our Pastoral Care Team speaking into and ministering to pastors who have been broken and are hurting.
