Pastor Paul Van Kesteren

Paul, Rachel and their son Jackson moved to Bothwell in July 2019 when Paul became the pastor at Bothwell Baptist Church. After serving in churches in St. Marys and Little Current on Manitoulin Island, Paul feels like he has come “full circle” by returning to his roots in Chatham-Kent. He says, “It feels good to be home.” Pastor Paul and Rachel have six children ages 10 – 25. They are scattered from Australia to Chatham, from London to Manitoulin and some in between. One of their biggest joys in life is when they all manage to be together in the same place at the same time. Pastor Paul has a heart for small towns and small-town churches. He loves the sense of community you find in these places and you can probably catch him chatting at the local shops and restaurants, talking to his neighbours, or participating in community sporting events. He believes his job is not just to be the pastor of the church, but to serve the whole community.
