Our Leadership
Based on the pattern of the New Testament church, North Hills is blessed with an eldership that oversees the congregation. These men are not driven by duty, but rather allow the Lord to move them as they make decisions to spiritually grow the North Hills family.
Paul Holdren

Paul Holdren


Paul, Debbie and Zak Holdren arrived at the North Hills church of Christ in the summer of 2000, after living in eight different cities during the first twenty years of Paul’s career in the Healthcare industry.

These last fifteen years have been the most spiritually rewarding for the Holdren’s according to Paul. He believes this is, in large part, due to the loving and welcoming environment and the enduring relationships they enjoy with the North Hills Christian family. His spiritual growth has been fostered by, and anchored in, the sound New Testament teaching that is presented here.

Paul grew up his entire life in the churches of Christ, where his father was a minister in various congregations of the church in Northern West Virginia and Eastern Ohio. Paul was baptized as a young teenager and is thankful to have been blessed with faithful parents that instilled in him the importance and relevance of our Heavenly Father, and his desire to call all those who will follow him, into eternal salvation.

After his professional career required him to work out of town for most of the last twelve years, Paul retired from full time work in September of 2015, and now works part time as the President of Adeptys, Inc., a professional healthcare management consulting firm that he founded in 2002.

His desire in filling the role of an elder is to serve, teach, and encourage his Christian family in any way possible to enhance and grow in their relationship with God, and to engage those who are seeking salvation.
