"By yourself you're unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped." — Ecclesiastes 4:12




“Paul Sorensen is both an incredible friend and a remarkable leader in the church.”

 – Tricia Neill, Executive Director, Alpha International

“I have great admiration for what you are doing.  And I hope you know how much affection and respect I have for you. If the church is to have a future—you and people like you are that future.”

“Paul Sorensen is one of those rare leaders and strategic thinkers that God graciously calls and raises up from time to time. Not unlike Moses’ servant Joshua in biblical times, Paul possesses a kind of three-fold ability to not only see it and say it, but to then move out and seize it in the advancement of the vision that God has given him.”

 – The Rt. Rev. Chuck Murphy, Founder, AMiA

“Paul Sorensen is one of the most visionary and strategic younger leaders I know. He has a deep love for Christ, a generous spirit, a passion for worship and a desire to see the church engaged in mission to a post-Christian world. He is a good friend and an inspiring colleague.”

 – The Rev. Dr. Graham Tomlin, Dean, St. Mellitus College
