MEET OUR PASTOR
Pastor Ken Patterson has been in the preaching ministry for nearly 25 years. He served under his father, Dr. O.K. Patterson Sr., at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church; under Dr. E. Thurman Walker at Antioch Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas; and at Concord Church in Dallas under Pastor Brian Carter.
In January 2021, Pastor Patterson returned to St. Louis from Dallas to serve the Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church where his father served for 46 years. God has given him a vision that the church continues to be “Rooted in Christ and Reaching the One.” He is intentional about making the word practical so that hearers can do what the word teaches. Pastor Patterson is married to a lifelong educator, Dr. Kristi Baker-Patterson.
