Paul Arend was born in Minneapolis, MN. As the son of two music majors, he developed a deep connection with music at a young age. He started leading worship at the age of 15, after having an encounter with God in which he realized that there was no option but God alone. He moved to Redding in 2011 to attend BSSM. Currently, he works as a live sound engineer for Bethel Church, and is a worship leader in the Bethel community. Paul carries a passion for people to have hope restored, and to live with a confidence that God is good and that the best is yet to come.
