Patrick began his journey of following Christ when he was 19 through the ministry of many wonderful people. His spiritual life grew in the next two years and he began to sense a call into full-time Christian ministry. Small steps grew into large steps which turned into many years of ministry in the Lord’s church.

He and his wife, Kristen, were married a little over a year after graduating from college. She has been a great blessing in his life along with their crew of kids: Olivia, Micaiah, Iain, Mia, Silas and Aliyah. God uses them continually to help him be more like Christ in ways they may never know.
