In addition, Patrick is active in the Five Cities Ministry Association, the Global Leadership Team of ACTS Churches International, the official dialogue of New Charismatic Churches with the Vatican Pontifical Council and other ministry organizations.
Because of the events of the past several months his interest has shifted to community activism with The People of Purpose.
“I am not a protester at heart, I have spent much of my life trying to bring sides together for mutual understanding and cooperation, but the recent political/social/economic fabrications have caused great concern for those of conservative values that love the Central Coast. The efforts of elected officials to give up our identity and freedoms for the sake of compliance to the experimental whims of the Governor and his policies are blind sighted with potentially devastating consequences. California is a broken State surviving on Federal subsidies and Sacramento social media is not the place to look for inspiration. There are thriving counties and cities with outstanding schools in other States that should become our models. We have become victims of the blind leading the blind crippled by political allegiance with the emphasis on policy implementation instead of capitalist innovation. A new leadership with fresh vision must arise.”

My wife and I were almost ready to leave California. We grew up here and raised our family here but the high living costs, the bloated, one-party government and failed social policies were all compelling reasons to move. Instead, we decided to join with like-minded people in our community to defend our God-given liberties and to protect our great Constitutional Republic.

We believe in the Constitution and its original intent to protect the hopes, dreams, and liberties of ‘We’ the people. We are dedicated to applying these constitutional rights to our local communities through education and action.
We support our military, law enforcement, and first responders. We strongly oppose government overreach and ensure our local elected officials do as well. We believe change can be achieved through peaceful constitutional means, so long as it is upheld.
The People of Purpose (POP2) movement welcomes all patriots regardless of political party, race, creed, or religious beliefs that fully support America’s founding values and the rights and freedoms enshrined in our Constitution.
We believe in a government limited to the specific powers enumerated in the Constitution and not driven by its own special interests. A government that protects and defends the God-given rights of every citizen.
Our strategy is to help build our local economy, build educational programs, and build strategic partnerships with like-minded groups and organizations. In doing so, this will help our movement achieve the goal of 10,000 freedom fighters.
