Paul Michael Raymond

President – The New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy
Paul Michael Raymond began his pilgrimage in 1985 when Christ called him from the heretical teachings of the Roman Catholic Church to the orthodox faith of Biblical Christianity. By early 1991, Pastor Paul had ministered as a youth counselor, adult Bible school instructor and was ordained in the Christian Reformed Church as Minister of Education & Evangelism. He was eventually compelled to challenge many accepted dogmas and improper practices of the CRC and was convinced that the CRC, as a denomination, was beyond repair. In the fall of 1992, the Reformed Bible Church of Suffolk County was established. In mid 1998, Pastor Paul moved his family to Virginia and established the Reformed Bible Church In Central Virginia at Appomattox which continues the Scriptural "Sola" tradition of Reformation Theology and practice, with a strong emphasis upon the Christian Cultural Mandate of Genesis 1:28 to subdue and take dominion over the earth. Pastor Paul expanded the ministry in 2001 by establishing an institute for higher theological learning and Christian scholarship - The Institute for Theonomic Reformation and in 2009 established The New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy. He is a graduate of Whitefield Theological Seminary with a Masters degree, and a doctorate from Almeda Theological University.
