Pastor John & Sherri Patterson

The ministry team of John & Sherri has been a blessing for many years.  They have recently relocated to the Springfield, Missouri area after their pastorate of a wonderful church called Apostolic Worship Center of North Platte, Nebraska for nearly 13 years.  Prior to North Platte their ministry was a blessing to churches in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Nebraska as they filled the roles of Youth Pastor, Assistant Pastor, Singles Ministry Director, Global Missions Director, Sunday school teacher, Music Ministry Director, and Outreach Director.  They have been married for 30 years, have two children and two grandchildren they love to spoil! 


They endeavor to build a thriving congregation in southwest Springfield, Missouri after they complete their relocation.  Please pray for the establishment and growth of this new assembly as they continue to do His work in these last days.
