Paul Thornton

My name is Paul Thornton and I am excited to join you here at First Presbyterian Church as the new bookkeeper. I can usually be found working amongst the rowdy bunch in the Finance Ministry offices during the week. I look forward to getting to know you over the next few decades. When I am not keeping the books I can be found trying out new (to me) restaurants, exploring the Triad with family, playing with the kids at home, listening to live music again (finally!), and playing music in venues all over my house. Before making the Triad home a couple of years ago, I spent my entire adult life in and around Austin, Texas. I’m happy to be someplace where a familiar hospitality flourishes, where my trees are as tall and abundant as my tales, and I can easily maintain my banana pudding and sweet tea diet. I brought my family, Stetson, and guitars with me; but behind I left the oil derrick in the front yard, the horse out back, and my old notions of proper barbecue in the compost pile. In all honesty, the transition to Carolina life has been a pretty easy one.  If you have questions for the bookkeeper I am most easily reached at If you have questions about Texan stereotypes, want to talk music, or offer restaurant recommendations; I can probably squeeze in a little time for those occasionally as well.
