Genai Patterson

Associate Pastor - Middle School

Along with giving oversight to the weekly middle school service, Genai plans events and works with adult leaders to disciple students as they follow Jesus. She loves seeing students passionately pursue God while also being kids — acting goofy and making lasting memories with their friends. Genai believes middle school students are young enough to still want to be silly but old enough to make independent steps spiritually. After growing up in Lifegate youth, Genai interned in the same ministry and never left.

Genai spends her time with family and friends outside, on bikes, delegating house projects to her husband and cooking. She grows amazingly healthy babies and has a huge extended family (81 grandkids on her dad’s side alone). Even though she didn’t fulfill her dreams of becoming the Yellow Power Ranger, she can ride a bicycle backwards.
