Hello, I’m Don Pate, Senior Pastor of the College Church in the Southern New England Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. I’ve been amazingly privileged to have a long career in ministry as a pastor, a teacher, an author, an 18 year radio voice, a creative television expositor…beyond that, I’m a Grampa, husband, dad, friend, woodworker, musician, used-to-be-athelet, worker in stained glass…but mostly, a forgiven sinner who’s astounded at the grace of Christ!
I intend to give you many varied, unique, and fascinating insights of scripture value. Yes, I said, “give.” That’s intentional. You’ll find no request for donation. There will be nothing for sale. I’ve been blessed and looking at the last decade of a career, it’s time to give back.
I’ve created a website as an outlet that will allow me to bless many and fulfill our Lord’s cammands…”to whom much is given, much is required.”
