Pat was born in Washington, DC and raised in the Virginia suburbs where most of his family still resides. Following a job to Colorado in 1994, Pat and his family moved to Parker. Two years later, he and his wife, Jennifer, found Parker United Methodist Church, became members, and have made the people at PUMC a significant part of their family.

Just a few years after joining PUMC, Pat was asked to lead the praise and worship band at the new contemporary worship service, a ministry that he enjoys to this day. It was through this service to God that Pat heard his call into ministry, a call that eventually resulted in his transition from lay ministry into clergy staff in July 2011. The opportunity to serve the people of Parker UMC that he has known and loved for so long has truly been a blessing.

Free time finds Pat closely following the Denver Broncos through their ups and downs, reading books of all kinds, enjoying games on his PS3, and watching The Amazing Race, always dreaming that someday he and Jennifer will get to compete in this incredible race-around-the-world.

Christ’s Love, a Force for Good in an Evil World

4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said,…
