Patrick Adair – Pastor

Patrick is from Palestine, Texas. He accepted Christ as his Lord as a child, and was called to a life of ministry in college. He served as a youth minister at First Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, where he felt called and was encouraged by his family and the members of that congregation to become a pastor. He was the pastor of First Baptist Church in Matador, Texas, and of Central Baptist Church in Marshall, Texas, before becoming pastor of The Crossing in September of 2017. His greatest joy in ministry is preaching and teaching the written word of God so that the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ, can continue to save and to transform lives into His likeness by the power of the Spirit, for the glory of God the Father.  

Patrick graduated with a degree in religion from East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, and received his seminary degree from George W. Truett Seminary at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He is currently working on his Doctor of Ministry degree at Truett. 


Patrick has been married to the multi-talented Jeni Adair since August 11, 2001. Jeni has been an elementary school teacher and school counselor. They have two wonderful daughters, Sheridan and Meagan.
