Worship Leader & Director of AV/IT
Nothing gives Patrick more pleasure than staying in tune with God through worship and he is constantly humbled by the responsibility to help lead. "The need for staying in tune with trends in Technology as it relates to our worship and our daily work is more important than ever in our rapidly changing society. I enjoy that challenge immensely (I like to turn the knobs and push the buttons...I also dream about commanding the Enterprise, so there's that)!"
Patrick deeply loved and connected with the words and sounds of traditional hymns from a very early age. "I still remember by heart just about every single hymn you could expect to hear in that little country church I grew up in here in Northwest Arkansas." He was a teenager when he started leading the congregation each week in worship. Much of his contemporary musical skills were honed by playing extensively as a working musician in restaurants and lounges and for various shows locally, and then for an extended period as a headline entertainer for many of the major cruise lines.
Patrick is married to Lacey and they have a son, Ben. "We are an adventurous crew... You will find us outside much of the time. We dig and plant and cut and stack and have more than our fair share of fires in the firepit." They enjoy spending time in the water in the summertime and are always getting together with friends and extended family. Ben is into everything and has a particular interest in music.
In addition to the many things does with his family, He enjoys cars. He likes to keep up with the latest auto market news and thoroughly enjoys the art of using an orbital buffer. They are increasingly enjoying cycling. Ben can now keep up and often takes off in the lead. They also enjoy visiting the 'county land' and riding their ATV. Patrick and his family also love live music and good food.
