Paul Purvis has been a lead pastor for nearly 20 years, serving the last 8 in the greater Tampa area at Mission Hill Church. The priority of prayer has been evident throughout Paul’s ministry at Mission Hill. In addition to daily staff prayer and a weekly all-church prayer gathering, Mission Hill has created a Prayer Pastor position and hosts an annual 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting leading up to Easter. This profound commitment to prayer has multiplied the ministry of Mission Hill Church and through this, God has shown His faithfulness over and over again.
