Rev. Patricia Greene began her time at First Baptist Church in the summer of 2014.  As Associate Pastor/Minister to Families, Patricia works closely with lay members to coordinate and provide meaningful children’s and youth ministries.  She appreciates the beauty and energy of young ones, and enjoys her time with them.  Instilling a love for God early on and helping young people see God’s love for them, are vitally important for Patricia.  Living into her role as Associate Pastor, she also takes opportunities to work with adults of all ages, provide pastoral care, assist with worship planning and leadership, and preach.  Loving God and loving others is central to who Patricia is as a person and minister.  Believing that each person carries the image of God within them, she works to remind people of their worth as children of God and help them see more clearly the way in which God is present and moving in their lives. 

Patricia attended Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC from 2005-2009, majoring in Religion.  She furthered her education at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA, receiving her MDiv in 2012.  After working as a pastoral resident at a church in Iowa for a year, she returned to North Carolina to complete a one-year chaplaincy residency at Wake Forest Medical Center before coming to First Baptist Rockingham.  

In her free time, Patricia enjoys playing the piano, connecting with friends, and playing softball.
