Celebrate Recovery Ministry

Welcome to the CHS Leadership page. Thanks for checking us out. I am Rev. James Paul Reese (“Paul”), a member of Community of the Holy Spirit since 1988. I am privileged to serve as Deacon in the church.  I am passionate about the vision and mission of CHS and strive to love God, love People, seek the lost and serve the community.

Within the church, I serve as Ministry Leader for Celebrate Recovery – a Christ-centered 12 step program. This ministry is for anyone who has ever had a hurt, habit or hang-up and would like help and support to move on and change. 

Outside the church, I am married to my wife, Margaret,  who is my help-meet and co-laborer in ministry. I also serve as a state representative for Celebrate Recovery and oversee CR groups in 8 NE Ohio counties. I am retired from general contracting, and am a Navy veteran. In my spare time, I enjoy fixing up my house, gardening, and creating with stained glass.
