Paul W. Fenton graduated from Northwest University in 1942. After completing his graduate work in 1944, he returned to his home state of Montana and pastored for 9 years.

From 1953-1958, Rev. Fenton served as Montana District Youth Director (D-Cap) and Christian Education (Sunday School) Director.

In 1958, the General Council of the Assemblies of God asked Rev. Fenton to serve with the National Sunday School Department. He accepted this challenge and moved to Springfield Missouri until 1973.

As a representative for Gospel Publishing House, Paul Fenton returned to the Northwest area to provide gospel and Sunday school literature in five Northwest states. In 1982, Northwest University honored Rev. Paul Fenton as Alumnus of the Year.

Rev. Fenton returned with his wife, Lillian, to Springfield, Missouri in 1981 to retire. The Lord took him “home” on April 4, 1986. His daughter, Priscilla (Fenton) Ross, desired that her father’s ministry would continue in the lives of Montana young people, and this dream has unfolded with the Paul W. Fenton Memorial Scholarship.
