Pastors Paul and Cindy Grodell, founders of Beyond the Walls Church, are both graduates of Cross Study Center and are ordained ministers through the Assemblies of God International Fellowship. Born, raised and established in the Greater Cleveland area, Paul and Cindy have two God-fearing adult children, each with their own growing families.
Having, themselves, been rescued by Christ from destructive addictions, it is their passion to minister to those who are broken, hopeless and often times forgotten. Inner-city outreach is at the heart of their passion and God-ordained calling. It is their desire to see people bound in poverty and addiction set free by the power of Christ; going out, beyond the walls of the church, to seek those who are lost, in order to build the Kingdom of God from the streets to the church.
