ST. PAUL WELCOMES NEW PASTOR
By LORETTA FULTON
A move to Abilene as senior pastor at St. Paul United Methodist Church put Steve Patterson almost back at Square One, give or take about 30 miles and a population difference of several thousand people.
The journey to St. Paul started in 1991 at the United Methodist Church in Avoca, located southeast of Stamford in Jones County. Since then, Patterson has served churches in Roby, the Panhandle communities of Miami. Friona and Dalhart, and now Abilene.
Patterson’s last pastorate before St. Paul was Central UMC in Dalhart.
