Patrick Shea - ASsociate Pastor of Community Life
Patrick was raised in Big Rapids, MI and grew up at St. Peter’s Lutheran church and school through 8th grade. Patrick gave his life to the Lord just before 3rd grade while attending summer camp at Spring Hill in Evart, MI. Just before high school his family made Trinity Fellowship their new church home. The time spent at Trinity, especially in their youth and adventure programs, was very spiritually formational for Patrick.
Patrick went on to study aviation at Western Michigan University with the intention of serving the Lord through missionary aviation someday. While at Western he met his wife, Jenny, and served for four years doing relational high school ministry with Young Life. Upon graduation, Patrick and Jenny were married and joined a Discipleship Training School through Youth With A Mission. Upon completion, Patrick sensed that his calling was more along the lines of relational and pastoral ministry, and so he took a position as a Young Life Church Partner in Grand Rapids, MI, where he served as youth director for five years.
Patrick and Jenny now have three children, age 5 and under, and they are excited to be back in Big Rapids serving the Lord and His people here at Trinity Fellowship while Patrick is mentored by Pastor Gary and finishes up his Master of Divinity degree at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He looks forward to graduating in May of 2015 and becoming a lead pastor in the local church, wherever the Lord might call him and his family.
