Leadership

  • Rev. Tolivar Wills

    Senior Pastor

    Tolivar, and his lovely wife Sam, hail from the great state of Ohio. Following 11 great years of ministry with Campus Crusade at Miami of Ohio University, the Lord led them to pursue their theological studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. They have 3 beautiful children, ranging from 22 to 14 years old. Prior to his arrival at St. Paul's, Tolivar served 3 1/2 years as an assistant pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in New Haven, CT., followed by planting a new church site in the Hill community of New Haven for 6 years. Sam and Tolivar both love college football, the Ohio State Buckeyes, and spending time with friends and family.

    In addition to loving to Shepherd the people of God, Pastor Tolivar loves to pass on what was given to him in various small groups, Churches, conferences, and retreats.  If you would like to contact him about a possible speaking or training engagement, please make your inquiries with our office.  We will get back to you soon.

    Both native Georgians, Larrie and her husband Andrew grew up in the city of Augusta and are excited to now call Atlanta home for the second time since getting married in 2013.

Elders and Deacons

We believe the Word of God is clear about the establishment of His church's leadership. Leadership in a presbyterian context includes a plurality of elders who shepherd, encourage, exhort, correct, and restore the people of God for God's glory.  As these men faithfully execute the office of elder and deacon according to His Word, and in the spirit that was intended, they mediate the leadership of Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
