Radically impacted for Christ while in college, John and Patty began serving at Life Center over 30 years ago. In this time they have witnessed the faithfulness of God transform countless lives and impact the next generation. Their love for the local church and desire to build genuine community define their roles. John provides oversight to the various facets of the ministry including its operations, staff responsibilities and family ministries. His messages proclaim a call to live lives of influence in a world so hungry for the Father’s love. Patty encourages women and families, while relating her journey in raising her own children. Her blend of practical aspects and spiritual principles is both humorous and inspiring. Patty also coordinates the 24/7 prayer life ministry, an integral part of life at Life Center.
John and Patty believe that God’s simple truths affect and strengthen every aspect of life as they discover the Kingdom in the midst of everyday living. Their greatest joys are found in the richness of their relationships, walking beside those with whom God has connected them and watching Him miraculously change the world. As native Pennsylvanians, they have three grown sons who now serve in the ministry, military and marketplace.
