Paul Camara
Ministry Assistant

Paul Camara was born in Long Beach, New York, and later he and his family moved to Bartow, Florida. He was brought up in a strict Italian Catholic home. As an adult, he realized that his walk with the Lord Jesus was not where it should be, so he went looking for what was missing. In 1994, Paul accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior. During this time, he worked and was trained in the field of advertising and marketing. He worked for WBAR, Bartow's #1 gospel radio station, all the while feeling like there was something more that he needed to be doing. In November of 2010, God led Paul to The House of God. Since coming to The House of God, he has seen God continuing His work in him and has also seen his 11 year old daughter Danika be baptized. Paul hopes that the Lord will work through him as Development Coordinator to see The House of God grow into a full and vibrant church—a true house of prayer for all nations.
