Pastor Binkley grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota. At the age of 5, during a blizzard that kept his family home from church, his Dad led him to the Lord. As a teenager, God gave him a desire for full time ministry . He attended Pillsbury College in Owatonna Minnesota where he met his wife, Karen, from Northern Maine. After graduation in 1992, they moved to Lansdale, PA where Paul completed a Master of Divinity from Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary.
God gave him and his wife 2 boys, Adam and Joel. Their family then moved to Parkesburg, PA where Paul served as Assistant Pastor at Highland Baptist Church for 5 years. In 2001, Paul resigned from full time ministry and worked in Insurance and Water Treatment Sales in Selinsgrove, PA for 10 years. In 2011, God brought their family to Bradford County PA, where Paul became a truck driver in the gas industry. They eventually ended up in the pews of Bakerburg Community Church. They joined the membership and Paul began teaching adult Sunday School Class occasionally.
Our Senior Pastor resigned at the end of 2014, and Paul agreed to help fill the pulpit as Interim Pastor. After a year of our Church praying and seeking God's will for the future of the Church, in January 2016, we voted to call Pastor Paul as our new Senior Pastor.
