Bishop Patrick Wooden Jr Is a founder and establisher of churches
In 1982, Minister Wooden was sent by his pastor, Sup't. James H. Turner, to start a work in the rural town of Candor, North Carolina. He began with a 6-week tent revival in the area. At the conclusion of the revival, he asked if any were interested in standing with him to start a church and 29 people stood to be part of the church that he later named The Lighthouse Church of God in Christ.
Bishop Patrick Lane Wooden, Sr. has been saved and serving the Lord for more than 40 years. He has been in the pastoral ministry for 35 years. He accepted Christ at the age of 16 and his life has been an example of what God can do when you give Him your whole heart at an early age. He attributes his success to God’s grace, mercy, and unmerited favor. He resides in Raleigh, NC with his wife of thirty-seven years, Pamela McNeil Wooden. They have two adult children, a son-in-law and three grandchildren!
