Patrick was born and raised in Brazil. He began leading worship and helping with graphic design at his church as a teenager.
He met Amanda while interpreting for international missions teams in 2004. They worked on missions teams every year after that and were married in 2009 when he moved to the United States. God has given them 3 beautiful boys: Jonas, Nicolas, and Elias. The Limas have also felt called to adopt and are committed to being a blessing to little ones who need a loving family.
Patrick received Jesus in 2015 after realizing that even though he had been in church for many years, he had never truly been saved! Patrick received his Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Leadership and Ministry from The University of Mobile in 2017.
Patrick’s favorite Scripture is Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” because it speaks of a shift in direction for those who come to Christ and devote their lives to Him.
Outside of playing and listening to music, Patrick loves super heroes and sci-fi. Patrick has been serving at PLBC since February of 2020.
