About Paul Murphy

Rev. Paul T. Murphy was born in Rome, Italy (1953) and came to the USA when he was three. He was raised in an Irish-Catholic neighborhood in the Bronx, N.Y.C.. Although he was an altar boy in the church and attended regularly until age 14 he did not know Jesus Christ personally. From an early age he searched for Truth and the meaning of life. A college degree in philosophy brought him no closer to the Truth. He pursued a career in deep-sea diving and underwater construction that took him all around the world as he continued the search for Truth. This searching also was vain. At the age of 29 he was confronted with the claims of Jesus Christ. Thinking them foolishness he sought to refute Christianity with the teaching of secular philosophy. The Lord broke down the barriers of his heart and captivated his life. The Truth had found him! Now like the apostle Paul this Paul can say “to live is Christ.  Prior to coming to Messiah's Reformed Fellowship, Rev. Murphy pastored Dutton United Reformed Church, Dutton, Michigan. Rev. Murphy is married to a fabulous wife, Julie. Together they have five grown children.
