New Life Leadership
Meet Our Pastors
Pastor Paul Browne
Husband of Lynne, father of Havilah, pastor of New Life since 1995
“After studying painting in art school, I became a believer in Jesus Christ in 1988. Coming to know Christ was what I had been waiting for—the beauty and love I had been seeking! It was going from death to life. I met Lynne about that time, who also became a Christian, and we were married in 1990. I then attended Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia and graduated in 1995. Our daughter, Havilah, was born that year, and upon graduation, I was called to serve as pastor of New Life, where I have been ever since. I can think of nothing in all the world that could have given more joy or satisfaction than serving Jesus and his people as a pastor. Even with all the struggles, it has been like tasting the joy of heaven and eternal life ahead of time.”
Associate Pastor Josh Valdix
A transplant from the West Coast, Josh has recently begun to serve as New Life’s Associate Pastor. Josh completed his MDiv at Westminster Theological Seminary in 2020. Afterwards, Josh moved to Hollidaysburg, PA, for a pastoral internship, which is where he met his wife, Chloe. You can often find Josh diving into a book, listening to a podcast, or drinking a great cup of coffee.
