Paula Killough was born in Maine, raised in Florida, and came to the Mennonite Church in Denver as an adult. After a career in retail Paula felt a call to seminary. She graduated in 2008 with a MDiv from AMBS in pastoral leadership and was ordained in 2011. Retired from Mennonite Mission Network as Senior Executive for Advancement and now serving as Director of Campaign at AMBS, she hopes to continue to serve the church in transitional ministry in training. She lives in community on Main Street in Elkhart, Indiana.
Testimonial: Nancy Kauffmann, Denominational Minister, Mennonite Church USA "I was impressed with the level of the training offered to prepare a transitional pastor to lead a healthy process that will resource, encourage and empower a congregation to move forward with God’s call on the congregation’s life. It also prepares the way for a new long term pastor."
