Paul Hodges was born to Christian parents in Midland, Texas, and it was there, at First Baptist Church, that he heard the gospel and as a nine year old professed faith in Jesus Christ. After completing undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University he went on to earn a D.D.S. from the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston. He practiced general dentistry in Brenham, Texas for nine years before serving for six years as a missionary appointed by the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention to the Fulani people in Nigeria, West Africa.
Returning to the U.S. to assist in the care of aging parents, he settled in Stephenville, Texas to again practice dentistry for thirteen years before retiring and moving to McKinney in 2010. Paul remains committed to supporting and participating in international missions.
Paul and Cherri, his wife and soulmate of more than thirty years, have two grown children and six grandkids. His interests include woodworking and outdoor activities – cycling, backpacking, fly fishing, and gardening.
