Pastor Paul Van Noy & Wife Brenda
Paul Van Noy is founding pastor of Candlelight Christian Fellowship in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. He was born in California where he served as a pastor for 14 years before moving to Idaho. He is an expository style teaching pastor and defender of a pre-millennial, pre-tribulational eschatology. He teaches the Bible through a clear and understandable dispensational hermeneutic. His weekly verse by verse Bible studies are enjoyed by both the members of Candlelight Christian Fellowship as well as by many across the country via DVD, the internet, and radio broadcasting. Paul is President of the Ministerial Association for the City of Coeur d’Alene, a community event coordinator, author, conference speaker, and most importantly, a servant of Jesus Christ. Many say Paul is the go to guy for grace-oriented Theology. Paul is happily married to his wife of 36 years – Brenda, has four grown children and 6 grandchildren.
