Hello, my name is Pat and I've been the Senior Pastor here at CFN since October 2008. Before arriving in Clearwater, I served as a Small Groups/Discipleship Pastor In Lakeland, FL and as a Youth Pastor in CA, WA and TX. My wife, Barbie, and I have been married for 24 years and we have a 19 year old son named Jake, who is now taller than me, and a 12 year old daughter named Erin, who many think is smarter than me.
I was recently asked to describe the CFN family...words from Romans 15:13 came to mind, "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." I'm amazed at how this church family embraces the hope found in Christ, strengthens that hope through worship, Bible study and prayer, and then allows that hope to overflow from their lives in various forms of ministry. It's a beautiful thing.
I hope you can join us for worship this weekend. And if you do, please take a minute to introduce yourself to me, I'd love to meet you.
