  • Paul drost, dmin., Lead Pastor

    As the Lead Pastor and Founding Pastor of Grace of Bel Air, the vision for Grace came out of a God-given call that touched the very core of my life.  The core of who I am embraces the Spirit-filled way of following Jesus and passionately pursues helping families build their lives on the words and teaching of Jesus.  Leading people to experience the life changing power of Jesus' love and grace brings great fulfillment to me.
