Michael L. Patterson is convinced there are men and women who walk into worship services across this nation listening for the clear call of surrender to the cross, who are willing to make themselves useful to the Master.
Running With Lions chronicles the journey of a young Michael Patterson as a Christian in a Timothy relationship learning how to minister to others, and grow and develop into a minister who has taken the role of Paul in training other men to become effective leaders in the Lord’s church. Michael knows he’s not perfect, however he strives to imitate Paul in becoming an “expert builder.” Michael Patterson is a man who answered the call to preach the Word of God in season and out of season. For almost thirty years now, this enlightening book shares his adventure, seeking to further build God’s kingdom. Leading and serving God’s people has been both exhilarating and humbling for Michael, and a role he has grown to cherish. He is convinced there is a sea of people like he was in his early years? Michael Patterson prays for his book to show the necessity of training and maturing leaders who will become trainers themselves. MCJ had an brief talk with this powerhouse minister.
