Pastor Patrick Drury

Senior Pastor
Pastor Patrick arrived in August 2012. His passion is to help the church develop a Culture of Grace where we can learn how to follow Jesus and love one another really well. If we can’t love each other with humility like Jesus taught, what do we have to offer the world.
