Mark & Christy Patterson
Mark Patterson serves with Training Leaders International, an organization that exists to establish and strengthen local churches and their leaders around the world. The growing gap in theological education leaves the global church susceptible to false teaching, decay, and collapse. TLI offers training that is culturally appropriate, effective, and reproducible.
Prior to TLI, Mark and Christy were sent out by Fellowship Bible Church of Mango, Florida to minister in Honduras since September 2007. In Honduras, Mark served as the facilities administrator for Ministerios Evangelicosde Las Americas (MEDA, or Evangelical Ministries of the Americas) in Siguatepeque, Honduras. The Patterson family also worked to plant a church, El BuenPastor (The Good Shepherd) in a small, remote mountain village. In addition to Mark’s preaching on Sundays and a children’s Sunday School class, they also worked with the local village council to promote community development and teach a sign language class.
God has blessed Mark and Christy with over 24 years of marriage and 7 children.
