ARKANSAS MEN'S MINISTRY
ARKANSAS MEN'S DIRECTOR
Ron and Sheril met as teenagers in the youth group at The Pentecostal Church in Fort Smith, and were married in 1985. Ron is a graduate of Apostolic Bible Institute with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology. They began their ministry as Youth Pastor in Mayflower, Arkansas, and then spent two years working with orphaned and displaced children at Tupelo Children’s Mansion in Tupelo, Mississippi. In 1992, God led them back home to Fort Smith where they began reinvesting in the church that gave so much to them by serving as Youth Pastor. Ron was elected Associate Pastor in 2006, and he and Pastor Sullivan have grown into a powerful and united team. The Patricks are innately compassionate and they indiscriminately love people. Ron’s kindhearted leadership and consistent example, along with Sheril’s sensitivity and servant’s heart for people, are invaluable to TPC family. Ron and Sheril have two daughters, Staci (and husband, Taylor) and Lexi. The light of their lives is their granddaughter, Eliza, born to Staci and Taylor in 2016.
Ron became the Arkansas Men's Ministry Director in 2021.
