Our Fathers, Our Friends, Our Faith

6.13 Paul Driskell 2_HSJoin us Sunday to hear a special Father’s Day message about fathers and father figures from Paul Driskell. A Fort Worth native, FUMCFW member, and two-time graduate of TCU, Paul has divided his life between Fort Worth and Washington, D.C. for 37 years.

After six years of college teaching, Paul joined the Leadership Staff of the U.S. House of Representatives. Serving as Executive Floor Assistant to House Majority Leader Jim Wright, Paul became a witness to some of this Nation’s most interesting political events, while working daily with legendary dynamic National Leaders.

He first began attending First Church when Gaston Foote was the Senior Minister and has frequently taught in many of our Sunday School Classes and the Winter Academy Classes over the past thirty years while commuting to the Nation’s Capitol.

His three-part program entitled “Washington through the eyes of the Monkey, rather than the Organ Grinder” has been presented at the LBJ School, Kennedy School of Government, University of Texas Law School, and the New York Economic Society.

Paul has spoken to virtually every type of professional Organization in this country. In 1993 Paul made over 130 appearances across the Nation addressing Healthcare and its treatment in Public Policy with appearances on Mac Neil Leher and countless local media venues.

His passion is history and storytelling, and he believes that by sharing ourselves we gain insights that lead us ever closer to a Christ centered life.

Paul, his wife Donna, and son Daniel live in Colleyville, Texas.
