Pastor Pat is the founding and Lead Pastor of Hope Crossing Community Church in Mission Viejo, California. He is a different kind of “church guy, “ and is a student of life whose collective experiences have led him into vocational ministry with a burning desire to share the Good News of Jesus.
Pat is gifted as a communicator and teacher, and is convicted about speaking the Truth as plainly as possible. God has given him a vision and passion for helping people meet Jesus, and each week he shares God’s word and its practical application in our daily lives. Pat received his BS from BIOLA University, and his Masters of Divinity at Rockbridge Seminary.
Most importantly, Pat is a husband to Gina, a father to their four Giraldin kids, Spencer, Jordan, Kyle, and Tyler, and grandpa to Emory. He’s most grateful to be a nobody trying to tell everybody about Somebody.
