CHURCH PLANT IN IRELAND 2023
We are so excited to be part of the launch team who will be planting a life-giving church in Dundalk, Ireland.
We believe that God has a plan and purpose for all 40,000 people living in this community.
Patrick was born in the Republic of Ireland and met Michelle in America while they were both touring with Covenant Players, an international drama ministry. We pastored in Massachusetts for almost fifteen years.
Since returning to Ireland in 2014, we have been actively assisting Irish churches to share the living message of Christ. We recently served at Lighthouse Church Dublin and have now returned to the United States to fundraise for our return to Ireland. We are part of the leadership team for the next Lighthouse Church plant. We will continue to have oversight of Pastoral Care, Next Steps, and the Welcome/Hospitality Teams. We will assist with all special events, community outreaches, and mission teams. Our heart is for our community because when we connect with others we have a greater chance to connect people to Jesus.
We have been married for 31 years and have four children. Lauren is a doctor in Ireland. Liam is a nurse practictioner in England. Lilia goes to Trinity College in Dublin, studying Science/Botany. Leisha is taking a gap year with us here in America and will begin college when we return to Ireland. She will study film.
