who are we? Paul McMahon

Paul McMahon: Paul was born and bred in south Auckland, moving to Christchurch after marrying Anne in 2004. He has completed a BA in History and Politics with Honours in Politics from the University of Auckland, a Graduate Diploma and a Master of Theology in Public Theology from the Bible College of New Zealand (Laidlaw College).

In May 2005 Paul and Anne, with Steve and Lynne, planted Espresso, an alternative conversation-based congregation. In March 2008 Paul was appointed as an Associate Pastor at Opawa Baptist, with primary responsibility for Mission Resourcing. He is Opawa’s Community Ministries leader and co-leader of Opawa’s Spiritual Growth Ministries. Paul also works for AngelWings Trust Ltd. researching, editing, googling, downloading, tutoring and writing. As time goes on, so will the list of ings.

Paul’s passion is how theology and biblical studies can shape politics, public/social ethics/justice and distributive justice, particularly in New Zealand. A growing interest, related to his position at Opawa, is community development in suburban New Zealand. Other interests include radical discipleship, theological storytelling, narrative therapy and cricket. He is an eNFp, so likes to unwind around a table with good friends, good food and, if he is very lucky, good pinot noir or pilsener.
