Pastor David Patrick was born into a Christian home in Oklahoma City, OK. He trusted Christ as his Saviour, and was baptized at the age of 15. He and his family moved to Corpus Christi, TX to serve with the late Lester Roloff. “Bro. Roloff” had homes for wayward young people. He also sang and traveled with Bro. Roloff for 2 years. After graduating from High School, he went to Bible College in Indiana. He graduated in 1984 with a major in Pastoral Theology. There he met his future wife, Cindy, and they were married in December of that year.
Mrs. Patrick was raised in Northern Iowa and was saved at age 9 because of a Sunday School bus worker’s concern and invitation to church. Mrs. Patrick has served alongside Pastor Patrick for many years and has helped in every area of ministry. She has a particular love for children’s ministries.
The Patricks have three grown children, Joshua who lives in PA, Caleb who lives in IN, and Hannah who lives with her husband in MD. All have made professions of faith. Joshua pastors a Baptist church with wife Shelby and son Ethan.
The Patricks came to First Baptist Church in February of 2021. They are excited to see what God will do. The church has a long history of being a lighthouse in the community. The theme of their ministry is taken from Ephesians 4:15, “…speaking the truth in love…”
