Paul Colburn

colburn-family-webI accepted Christ at the age of 17. After spending a few years chasing the American Dream, I enlisted in the United States Army.  While I served my country in Desert Storm, I wasn’t serving the Lord the way He commands us to serve Him. After I completed my tour of duty and began college, the Lord began calling me back to Him. During this time, I met my wife Karyn who led me back to the church where I really began to grow as a believer. When we moved to Birmingham, Alabama, for work, I began doing local mission work with my church, First Baptist Church Pelham. After the tragic death of my best friend, I answered the call to go to Peru on my first international mission trip. The Lord changed my life forever on that trip, and shortly afterwards I answered His call on my life to go on staff with e3 Partners Ministry as a church planter. I have been on staff with e3 since 2006 and lead many trips doing evangelism, discipleship, and church planting around the world. In 2011, God was calling me to do more, and I got involved with building MetaCamp. Karyn, my two daughters, and I moved to Dadeville in August of 2012, and I now serve as the Director of Camp Operations at MetaCamp.  Through my work with MetaCamp and e3, I have the joy of being able to partner with other believers to grow the Kingdom of God.
