James Paton

Lead Pastor

Pastor James provides leadership to FAC’s Lead Team and weekend teaching team, and serves on the Board of Elders. He joined the FAC staff team as Lead Pastor in 2015, and participates in shaping the creative culture of our weekend gatherings.

Born in Scotland and raised in Northern Ireland, James loves movies and good coffee, and considers himself a theology nerd and a world tourist who “speaks several languages poorly.” He’s married to Gillian and has 3 adult children, now also enjoying being a grandparent!
