Paul LaRocque

Pastor of Neighbourhood Connections

Paul is originally from New Brunswick - it was halfway through his Bachelor's degree in Nova Scotia that he encountered Christ and dedicated his life to Him. He continued his science studies there and then at the U of Toronto where he completed a PhD in laser physics.  

Paul retired in 2020 after 35 years at the same company, where his work as a scientist and eventually a VP was the design of special lidars for terrain and ocean mapping. He is passionate about the integration of the Christian faith with modern science.

Paul is married to Grace and they have three grown boys and four grandkids (so far). They have been attending and serving in various roles at RAC since 1990. In mid 2020, Paul completed the credentialing interview to become an Alliance pastor at RAC, and took on the lead pastoral role at Neighbourhood Connections Church.
