PAUL POGUEPogue Family Missions
Paul is a founder of Minuteman, and has remained a highly active member since its inception.

Paul has been involved in Missions ministry for 40 years. He also started a commercial construction company that is 40-years strong, and now run by one of his sons. He sees the parallel successes of those endeavors as no mere coincidence.
