About Us

Senior Pastor - Bob Patterson

Pastor Bob has been ordained through the Church of God Ministries since August, 2011. He had previously served as the Associate Pastor of the First Church of God since January, 2009. He was promoted to Lead Pastor on January 1, 2012.

He has a heart that is passionate about the church. "For the church to thrive, we all must be vigilant about pursuing Jesus Christ on a daily basis. When it begins with each of us, then it will overflow into our families. And then it will overflow into the church. It is then that the church will pour out the love, grace and mercy that Jesus has demonstrated to us. But, it must begin with us. Its a daily pursuit...a daily surrender."

Pastor Bob is married to Adria (Frecker) Patterson, who serves as the Administrative Assistant for the church. They have two children: a daughter, Isabella and a son, Kamron.

Youth Pastor - Mat Brown

Mat serves as Youth Pastor for our church, a calling that he has answered and has faithfully served God for over 12 years. He is excited about what God is doing with the youth of our community and he is honored to be a part of it. Mat works at the University of Rio Grande, where he is the Professor of Nursing. 

Mat is married to Jennifer (Errett) Brown, and they have two daughters, Matison and McKenzie.
