Samuel Paschal III
West Coast Music & Worship Conference Presenter
Samuel Paschal III was born in Huntsville, AL on August 27, 1982 to Samuel, Jr. & Rachel Paschal. Raised there, he became a product of Christian education by attending Oakwood Adventist Elementary, Oakwood Adventist Academy, and Oakwood University. At Oakwood University, he met Melanie Jones whom he later married on December 16, 2006.
Answering the call of God, Sam served as the Youth Pastor of the Miramonte Blvd. SDA Church in Los Angeles, CA from 2006-2009. He also served as the 10th & 12th grade Religion Teacher and Drama Teacher at Los Angeles Adventist Academy. Currently, he serves as the Boys’ Dean, 12th grade Servant Leadership Drama Ministry Teacher, and Unveiled Drama Ministries Director at Forest Lake Academy. His favorite texts are Psalm 23 and 1 Corinthians 10:31.
In his spare time, he enjoys drama ministry, martial arts, playing sports, singing, swimming, working out, hanging out, having fun, eating, and sleeping. Pressing on toward the mark of the high calling of God, he hopes to one day have some fun with Jesus, act out for the angels, arm-wrestle with Samson, race his guardian angel, climb the highest mountain, and sit at the Welcome Table one of these days. Bottom line: he looks forward to enjoying the fruits of God’s labor for him forever.
