Kirksville is a wonderful mix of agriculture and academia which mirrors Patrick’s own background having grown up in a farming community and having spent most of his career as an analytical biochemist. The LORD has used Patrick’s ministry and research experience and his agricultural and academic backgrounds to prepare him well for the ministry of church planting in Kirksville. Further, Patrick has a personal connection to the Kirksville community where he began his undergraduate studies at Truman State and is excited to return as an ordained minister of the Gospel in this community.
