At the age of 13, Patsy attended Acquire the Fire and recalls the significance of this experience for her growing faith. A couple years later in high school, a public declaration for Jesus, and involvement in Christian youth ministry developed in her a desire to build healthy and dynamic community, especially so that young people can find belonging and identity in the local church. Patsy holds a B.A. in Communication and an M.A. in Practical Theology with a concentration in Marketplace Ministry from Regent University. Together with husband Will, and their boys Liam and Shepherd, the Martin family enjoy the beach and all sports. Elvis, their black brindle French Bulldog, brings a lot of laughter to their home and is often misunderstood.
