Paul and Caryl Weingartner

REVEREND PAUL & CARYL WEINGARTNER, National Representatives for the Blind

Since 1994, Paul has directed the Assemblies of God Center for the Blind. Under his leadership the ministry has grown to become nationally recognized as a leader in ministry to the Blind.Paul is a graduate of LeTourneau University and earned a B.A. degree in Bible. Paul began his call into ministry at the age of 8 when a verse impacted his life and became the catalyst for going into full time ministry. John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last.

Packing needed material into missionary barrels to be shipped overseas and often working in construction for churches and Christian camps, he acquired a passion for ministry in those young and formative years of boyhood. His experience has been with churches, camps, schools and orphanages from New York to Mexico. Paul served with an inner city ministry for families touched by disabilities in New York City.

Rev. Paul Weingartner lives in Springfield, MO with his wife, Caryl. Paul & Caryl have 5 children.
