Bio – Patrick Dominguez

Patrick Dominguez ~ Senior Pastor

I was born in Baltimore Md. In 1963 and had the privilege of living in Egypt and Venezuela for several of my younger years. My father was a Marine Corp officer who married a beautiful Egyptian girl! This made for a lot of travel opportunities. In 1985 I graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University with a BFA in acting. I enjoyed the school very much but the greatest thing that happened to me in those years was when I met and received the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have been working in Ministry since 1987. Susan and I married in 1985. We have two wonderful girls, Rebekah (1986) and Amy (1989). It has been a pleasure to serve the Lord in missions, youth  Ministry, pastoral Ministry, acting, worship and the arts throughout my career. After 17 years of youth Ministry I became a priest in Sewickley, Pa., at St. Stephen’s Church. I served on staff there for 13 years before accepting the call in 2005 to be the senior pastor of Church of the Apostles.

I have often been called upon to speak at camps, youth events, retreats and chapels. It has been a  joy to see hundreds strengthened in their faith or come into first time relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I love being able to work with God’s people to accomplish God’s purposes. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Colossians 1:28-29, “We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”
