Bill & Patricia Patterson
Dr. Bill Patterson, a southern California native, earned his bachelors and masters degree from Chapman College, Orange, California, and his doctor of philosophy degree from Arizona State University where he met P.A.
Dr. Bill has extensive years of experience as an educator in college and university settings as well as in kindergarten through high school academic venues within parochial and public schools.
He also graduated from a two year Bible School at Faith Christian Center, Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Bill has provided training seminars for church workers and church staff, ministered at most Saturation Saturday events, and ministered as a guest at other churches upon invitation.
Sensitive to the Holy Spirit as he ministers, Dr. Bill is an anointed and invigorating teacher of the Word of God while also operating in the gifts of knowledge and healing. His numerous personal healing testimonies offer life-changing knowledge and encouragement to the body of Christ.
Patricia Patterson “P.A.”, a native Arizonan, is a master degree graduate of Arizona State University. She has recently retired from a 31+ year career in education where she taught elementary, secondary and college age students as well as was an administrator, teacher/principal trainer, and curriculum specialist in both private and public schools.
P.A. also graduated from a two-year Bible School at Faith Christian Center, Phoenix, Arizona. In addition, PA currently holds a weekly prayer meeting with the staff of a local private Christian school in Phoenix, Arizona. She has also taught weekly webcast series titled 'Prayer Life Vision Shift' and 'Living the Spirit Led Life.' Recently, PA was the keynote speaker at a women's conference in western Michigan and accepts conference, workshops, and seminar speaking engagements.
“P.A.” has an exhortative teaching style that is relatable to all age groups as she injects humor, zeal and thoughtfulness while she precisely teaches the Word of God with boldness and clarity. She also moves in the gift of word of knowledge.
Dr. Bill and P.A., married for 35 years, have one daughter, and son-in-love, who reside in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
God put the vision of Saturation Saturday on Bill and P.A.’s hearts in 2007. Originally a women’s ministry, Saturation Saturday Ministries now ministers to men, women, couples, church staffs, pastors, youth, women’s groups, men’s groups or wherever the Holy Spirit leads.
"The vision of Saturation Saturday is to precisely and dynamically teach the Word of God in tandem with allowing the move of the Holy Spirit."
