  • Paula Woodson

    Lead & Executive Pastor Assistant

    Paula and her husband David moved to Holly Lake Ranch the Spring of 2014 and knew immediately that Summit Heights was their church home.  After serving on staff at two churches over a 20 year span, Paula thought she was ready for retirement. After a few months, it was evident her love to serve and work for  the  church was stronger than baking cookies and reading recipes. She serves as Edward's and Jake's administrative assistant. Paula loves spending time on her back porch watching the woodland creatures, walking, reading and hanging out with her husband of 34 years.
