Family Introductions for Pastor Larry

As we prepare for a joyous season ahead with God - our hearts are focused on welcoming our new Senior Pastor - Larry Patton, his wife Faith, and their entire family to our church and community. He has provided a personal introductory message below. In turn, he would love to hear from you and your family - in your own words.   

Let's celebrate by sharing our story. We encourage you to take a few moments to introduce your family to Pastor Larry. Feel free to share as the Holy Spirit leads. You can follow the same style that Larry has provided in his story below.

We know God is doing exciting and wondrous things in our church and beyond! Let's not only welcome Larry and his family - let's share our personal family story with them and embrace what God has already put into place.  

Larry's Story - In His Own Words.

My name is Larry Patton. I was born and raised in the St. Louis area and moved to Atlanta for seminary at Emory University. I married Faith Roberts in 1997, and she and I both graduated with Master of Divinity degrees. We have 3 children, 2 girls and a boy. This is my 31st year in full time ministry in the Methodist Church. I transferred ordination to the Global Methodist Church on March 2nd of last year.

As hobbies, I enjoy jogging, music, aviation, sports (especially college football), and reading and studying the Bible and history.

My favorite thing about PFMC was the warmth, joy, and hospitality I experienced during the interview process. My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.
