ARTIST OF THE DAY
Patrick Ryan Clark
Patrick Ryan Clark grew up in the Oklahoma Bible belt. Church was a ritual and not spiritual for him. Life was about having fun. He had plenty of talents (including ruling his school's basketball court) and was a part of the in-crowd. One night at a party, he stumbled across a friends CD collection. One of the CD's was called "Jesus Freak." Patrick swiped the dcTalk album and listened to it while driving home.
He says that when the song "What If I Stumble" came on, it reduced him to tears. The realization that God really loves us just as we are, was ultimately the real game-changer. Patrick pulled the car over and in tears prayed to accept Christ into his heart as his Savior and Lord. That decision eventually paved the way for the life he never expected. A week later, Patrick gave up basketball and also happened to pick up his first guitar. At first strum, he was addicted.
Drawing from his life experiences and the personal stories of the people he leads in worship each week at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, the songs on his debut album Where Would I Be are rife with encouragement, hope and a grace-centered perspective.
Ministry: Patrick is the worship pastor at Watermark Community Church and he also leads Celebrate Recovery there - helping people find freedom from their hurts, habits and hang-ups.
