Paul was born in St. Louis Park, MN, April 29, 1963 to Rev. Lyle and Elaine Lindloff on his father's birthday.  The Lindloff family moved to Thiensville, WI in November 1966 and Paul attended Calvary Lutheran School.  His high school years were spent on the campus of Northwestern Preparatory School, Watertown, WI, graduating in 1981. 

During his college years on the same campus, Paul met his future wife Sarah Luedtke.  After one year of teaching for Sarah and one year of seminary training for Paul, they married on August 2, 1986.

Upon graduation from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Paul received a divine call to serve Christ Ev. Lutheran Church in Oakley, MI.  After serving for ten years Paul received a divine call to serve Emanuel First Ev. Lutheran Church in Lansing, MI, where he has served for the past eleven years.

Paul considers it a great blessing to have received such a tremendous education preparing him for service to the Lord and to His Church.  It is also a great privilege to serve God's people as a pastor.

The Lindloff family is blessed with four wonderful children: Emily, Anna, Nathanael and Lucas.
