My life verse(s) are Psalm 121: 
I lift up my eyes to the hills— 
    from where will my help come? 
2 My help comes from the Lord, 
    who made heaven and earth. 
3 He will not let your foot be moved; 
    he who keeps you will not slumber. 
4 He who keeps Israel 
    will neither slumber nor sleep. 
5 The Lord is your keeper; 
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand. 
6 The sun shall not strike you by day, 
    nor the moon by night. 
7 The Lord will keep you from all evil; 
    he will keep your life. 
8 The Lord will keep 
    your going out and your coming in 
    from this time on and forevermore. 

Hi, I'm Vicki Patton, Associate Pastor at WCC.  I absolutely love what I do!  My primary responsibilities include equipping and supporting our ministry teams and church body.  Together we want our church to be the place people can go to make life-long friends. I also assist our Compassionate Ministries leaders, knowing that caring for the needs of the people is at the heart of all that Jesus calls us to do.  
 
Basic Stuff:
I am the mom of five wonderful children, their spouses and the nana of 8 delightful grandchildren!  It has been my greatest privilege to be a part of their lives. I am excited to watch as God unfolds the plans He has for our family.
 
In a previous life:
I was, and at heart remain, a proud Army wife.  My husband, Steve, served with 160th SOAR for 16 years.  Our entire military career was spent at Fort Campbell, with our only moves being from Werner Park to Drennan Park, and then to Woodlawn!  In Steve's eighteenth year of service, he was diagnosed with cancer.  By God's grace, Steve continued to serve until his retirement.  God's grace and mercy continues to be a source of strength and hope now.
 
Education:
I am an ordained Elder in the Church of the Nazarene. I have Bachelor's Degree in Pastoral Ministries from Nazarene Bible College and a second degree in Counseling in Christian Ministry. 
 
Interests and Favorites:
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, eating and laughing together.
 
My television remote always clicks to Fox News or Home and Garden TV.  One of these days I'm going to find time to build that patio and plant my dream garden.
 
I love to read books on leadership and theology, but on a quiet day off I can spend hours and hours reading story books to my grandbabies.
 
God encourages me with these words from Isaiah 40:31: "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint."
