Bishop Paul Pei Junmin was born in 1969. Following his priestly ordination in 1992, he served first as assistant pastor of the cathedral parish. In 1993, he became one of the first Liaoning diocesan priests to go abroad for further studies. He obtained master's degrees in theology and biblical studies in the United States.

After returning to China in 1996, he served as the vice rector and dean of studies at Shenyang Seminary. He was ordained coadjutor bishop on May 7, 2006. On June 29, 2008, then Bishop Pius Jin Peixian of Liaoning - archbishop of Shenyang, according to the Vatican - retired and passed his episcopal responsibility to Bishop Pei, coadjutor until then.
