Patrick has always grown up knowing that a church can be so much more than a building. Growing up in Virginia Beach, Virginia, he was part of the contemporary band and a Youth leader. He was a member of Courthouse Community United Methodist Church and was part of the worship band and a Youth Leader. His church community allowed him to see that God’s gift of music was a way for him to communicate with others and navigate this beautiful, complex world. Patrick then went on to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts with a concentration in songwriting. Since moving to California, He now focuses on contributing to his local community by sharing his passion for music, and to show that church can feel like home. Leading the worship band and youth program, he wants everyone to feel like they belong and can feel safe to explore their faith in their own way.
