Mark is also a Co-Pastor of their local church Emanuel Baptist Church. His wife and his 7 children children help with the church's Day Home, which provides free after school care for about 24 children who come from low income single parent homes. Their children are taught the Word of God and fed daily. The family also assists with a church plant, El Buen Pastor (The Good Shepherd), in a remote mountain village. Our church's support helps them continue to minister to the people of Siguatepeque in Honduras.
We contribute a portion of our budget toward the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program, the Royal Palm Baptist Association, the Founder's Ministry, and to support the Missionary Mark Patterson.
We send monthly support to the Patterson family, who are working as missionaries in Honduras. Mark works for MEDA (Ministerious Evangélicos de las Américas), which is an evangelical pastoral training center in Honduras whose mission is to promote the exaltation of Jesus Christ in Latin America through the Spirit-filled, powerful, passionate, and precise preaching of His Word. MEDA’s vision is to train church leaders through sound biblical exegesis to exalt Christ in their lives & in their preaching. To learn about this ministry, visit www.meda-hn.org.
