It is staff bio time again! I don’t know about you, but I love staff bio time. We only have a couple left. This week we are featuring Patrick Showers. Patrick has been at Woodland Hills for over 12 years. He has been in many roles and has many giftings. Enjoy learning a bit about him.
PATRICK: “I started following Jesus 22 years ag,o and I have experienced great adventures as well as tough times during that time. Through that journey, God led me to children’s ministry, in which I have served in some capacity for 20 years. I’ve been blessed to be married to my wonderful wife Lynnette, and we have four children: Jesiah, Adriel, Eliah and Malachi. We currently live in White Bear Township.”
I asked Patrick what he enjoyed about Children’s ministry.
PATRICK: “I enjoy seeing kids having positive experiences and connections with God’s word, church, the Bible, worship and prayer. I also enjoy seeing kids grow and mature in their faith.”
I asked Patrick where his dream vacation would be, and he had quite the list! Patrick would like to travel to Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Austria. He would then continue on to Israel, Greece and Turkey.
Lastly, something that not many people know about Patrick is that he loves playing football. He was the center and nose tackle in high school on an undefeated team for two years.
