Craig Hadley

Lead Pastor

A few years ago, Craig enrolled in the architecture program at Montana State University.

While there, he was introduced to a wide diversity of people and faiths that he had never experienced before. 

This diversity exposed the narrow understanding of God that Craig possessed. Craig faced a daunting question, "Does God only love a small, select, group of people who believe the right things or does God really love every living person?"

He graduated from Montana State University, and immediately enrolled at La Sierra University. While at LSU, Craig was introduced to a wider, more inclusive, and loving God. After a few years, he earned his Masters of Divinity degree. 

After a few more years, Craig and the Founding Board established Paradox Church. In 2022, Craig graduated from George Fox University with a Doctor of Ministry. His focus was a film series to help Christians process Biblical Contradictions in a healthy way. This film series can be seen on this website. 

God still regularly exposes the narrow understanding of God that Craig has. And Craig's faith continues to change.

At Paradox, Craig's greatest joy is to walk through life with others as they and he experience the ever-expanding-and-overflowing-excess of God's love.

Jasmine Bilbao

Administrative Assistant

Hi, my name is Jasmine Bilbao and I’m so grateful to be serving you at Paradox. I have considered Paradox my spiritual home since 2016 and have loved growing with the church. I started working part-time with just social media February 2021 but now have the creative freedom to do more since working full time April 2022.

 

My favorite thing about this church is the community and how everyone can come from different places, backgrounds, and opinions together in worship. I love working with the production and hospitality teams, and I love coming up with new ideas for the future.

 

Some of my hobbies include spending time with my friends and family, doing something active outdoors, and watching Formula 1!
