Paul Nienow


Paul’s 30+ years of involvement at Calvary Church began when he accepted Christ as his personal savior as a teenager at a Calvary Church youth group camp. He became a member of Calvary Church in 1986 and has been serving in the church since that time including as a member of the Trustee, Missions and Student Ministries leadership teams, as well as a part of the leadership team of his Sunday morning LifeGroup.

Paul and his wife of 25 years, Tootie, met when they were both student leaders in Calvary’s Junior High ministry, and they currently serve together as LifeGroup leaders in Calvary’s High School ministry. They have two children, both of whom attend and are involved in ministry at Calvary Church. Their daughter, Emily is in college and is leading a LifeGroup in the High School Ministry. Their son, Adam is in High School and plays drums in the High School and Elevation worship bands. As a family they have had the opportunity to serve together on mission trips to Mexico and Ecuador.

Paul has been a CPA for over 20 years and is the managing partner of a small practice in Tustin where he and his team assist with business and tax consulting and compliance issues. He is involved with other ministries and organizations, including as a member of the Board of Trustees of Olive Crest.
