Abe Paul

Elder

Abe and his family have been at IBC for several years now. Abe was originally introduced to IBC through the special needs ministry, Arise.

Abe was born in India and immigrated to the United States before he was two years old and grew up in New York. He attended the University at Albany and completed a degree in accounting and also earned an MBA in finance. It was at the University at Albany that he had his first chance to serve in ministry with various college ministries, including helping to start a college ministry called Indian Christian Fellowship.

He currently works as the Chief Audit Executive at Celanese, a Fortune 500 global technology and specialty materials company. I am a certified public accountant and have worked for two of the Big Four accounting firms.

His wife, Betsy, and met in Albany and moved to Texas now over 15 years ago. We have been married over 17 years and have two children, Elyssa and Elijah.

He is passionate to see others come to fully experience the goodness of God’s grace and His faithfulness in their lives. Experiencing the joys and challenges of being a parent has allowed me to appreciate God as my good Father more deeply.
