Pat Smith, Family Pastor

Pat grew up in Northeast Ohio. After living a life that wasn’t honoring God, he made Christ his Lord and Savior in 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. One of Pat’s favorite verses comes from 2 Corinthian’s 5:17 which says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” This verse has shown Pat that God can change anyone, no matter what their past looks like.

Pat and his wife Rachel have been married since 2008 and have 6 wonderful children. He has a master’s degree in Pastoral Leadership from HarvestNet Institute and has been ordained. He previously served as a Youth and Associate Pastor for a sister church. He and his wife love working with children and youth, teaching them about Christ, and helping them to build godly character.

Steve Forsythe, Elder
