Derek Patz | Youth Pastor Intern


Hi! My name is Derek Patz! I am from the small town of Coleman, Wisconsin and am studying Pastoral Leadership at Crown College in St. Bonifacius. I enjoy watching sports, playing golf, and learning more and more about God's Word. I have a passion for the Word of God and for helping others come to know Christ as Lord and Savior, and to have a deeper relationship with Him. It's my pleasure to be able to shepherd the youth of Minnetrista Baptist and I'm excited to see what God is going to continue to do here through the body of our church.
