Pat has been our lead pastor for over 10 years! He cares deeply for Faith Mountain and is committed to transitioning leadership well. Pat said, "When a church is without a leader for an extended period of time it is bad for the people. I want to hand the baton off while running full speed to someone who is running full speed."
Pat will continue on staff at Faith Mountain as the Founding Pastor. He will continue to teach on Sundays, be involved in our local outreach efforts, and our first experience team. In addition to those roles he will focus a great deal of energy on coaching and training pastors as they start new churches. Perhaps most importantly, he will be at church most Sundays giving hugs to everyone.
