Paul H. Grier
Vice President, Project Regeneration
Paul joined the Presbyterian Foundation in 2003, after serving as a volunteer. During his first nine years he worked with congregations and their members to cultivate and develop gifts for ministry purposes. Currently, Paul works with congregations and institutions of the Church that are exploring new ways of undertaking their mission, and the financial implications that such reinvention entails. Whether working with a Presbyterian-related college that has been offered a gift of investment real-estate in a distant location, or assisting a congregation that is seeking to discern whether they should sell air or water rights, or divest themselves of some of their campus property, Paul draws upon his business and financial-management background to aid Church leaders in the repurposing of their properties and assets for sustainability and continuing mission-effectiveness.
An eighth generation Presbyterian, Paul is a ruling elder and lives in Greenville, South Carolina. He is active in community and charitable organizations, having served on local, regional, and national boards of foundations, arts organizations, healthcare providers, advocacy groups, trade associations, and community non-profits. He has a B.S. in Business Administration from Erskine College in South Carolina and a M.H.A. in Health Administration from the Medical University of South Carolina.
