On May 7, 2020, Pastor Darrin Patrick passed away suddenly, leaving behind his wife and four children. Darrin was a remarkable man who touched thousands upon thousands of lives, and we are so grateful for the time that God gave us with him. He had a true gift for teaching the Word and a heart for encouraging other pastors. His influence and impact cannot be measured. We are surrounding the Patrick family with our prayers and support during this time.

As we process our grief and heartache, we want to provide a way for others to give assistance to the Patrick family, and show their deep love and appreciation for what Darrin meant to them. We are committed to being the Church during this time by comforting the hurting and helping meet their needs.

I only met Darrin a couple times but his preaching of the Word is part of what has made me the man I am today. I am 38, an elder at my church, and a man that values the centrality of the gospel. His preaching was a part of getting me to this point. Thank you!

I always looked forward to hearing Darrin speak at Seacoast. He never failed to touch my heart and cause me to examine my own life more deeply through my faith. His teachings made me a better person. I am forever grateful to have had him and his family as part of our Seacoast family. He was a blessing to us all.

I first met Darrin at St. Patrick's Day tournament in 2018. Our boys have played many baseball games together since. Darrin was inspirational and so easy to talk to. I was blessed to have him as the friend the last couple years. We were just texting this week about carpooling to the boys practice. I will miss him and my heart goes out to the Patrick family.

Before we moved from St. Louis to Indiana in 2008, Sarah and I were blessed to have Darrin as our pastor. His authentic style of teaching was relevant, engaging and applicable.

2020-05-09 16:14:35

We’ve been a part of several churches over the last 30 years and being fairly new to Seacoast, it was like coming home. Our 1st visit was watching Pastor Darrin and what a message he presented. You could see his passion and transparency in wanting to reach others for Jesus. Although we never met him in person, we could sense how much he loved others. Our family sends prayers for comfort, strength, & much love to Darrins wife, children and our Seacoast family.


2020-05-09 16:14:35

I am honestly hurt and distraught. If Jesus let's me, when I get to Heaven, I'm going straight up to Darrin and punching him. But for right now, and going forward, his wife and kids are in my prayers, thoughts, and heart. I sincerely thank you for sharing your husband and father with everyone he helped bring to Jesus, especially myself. Through the Journey Church, my spiritual walk grew tremendously. I thank Darrin and his family for all the sacrifice and love they put into the Journey Church. I promise you it was not in vain. Love all of you.

It was a privilege to have Darrin as a teaching pastor at Seacoast. My note sheets were always filled with meaningful phrases and The Word itself....corner to corner, back and front. He truly will be missed. My prayers will be with the family during this time of grieving. With love.......

Dave, Cindy and family

2020-05-09 16:31:27

When Darrin started the Journey SI in Marion, we offered him our lake house as a place to stay while he was here working. Over the years he was the pastor here, he and his family became family to us...2of our grandchildren were the same age as 2 of his children...we had lots of fun and fellowship together. Priceless memories we will always treasure. We are so thankful God saw fit to have our paths cross not to mention the growth that took place in us as we were taught by him.


2020-05-09 16:36:23

I loved the Sunday’s when I would get to hear Darrin speak. I could just sense the Holy Spirit in him through his sermons, he truly was my favorite to hear on Sundays. Praying for you Patrick Family and friends. May you feel the presence and peace of Jesus at this time.

Psalm 34:18-19 The Lord is near to the broken hearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. I would never have known that scripture of any other if it weren't for Darrin who opened my eyes and heart to the word of God. His preaching spoke to people and made them respond. I am broken hearted along with everyone else and I ask God's mercies for Amie and the kids. Lift their eyes to You, Lord and help them through this unimaginable loss.

I did not know your pastor and I never attended any of your church sermons as I live in Lehigh Valley PA. My pastor Jon Schwartz from life church posted this and I watched the video and it touched me so deeply and god filled my heart up with generosity right when I read and watched this terrible situation.

Our prayers continue for Amie and the children, as well as all the people across the world who were impacted in such an amazing way by Darrin and his ministry.

We believe they have found each other in Heaven and are rejoicing in perfection, no longer bound to this sin filled place. We can’t wait to join them—come quickly, Lord Jesus. Thank you for Darrin—thank you for Amie and the children. We love you.

Darrin was my favorite pastor and he helped draw me back to God when I was living in St. Louis. He even had a way with my non-believing friends when I brought them to church. Even when he began preaching at Seacoast I would only want to watch if it was Darrin that day. I can't imagine what his family is going through. He left such a huge impact.

Ed & Melissa Kornfeind

2020-05-10 18:55:30

“There are times when we are beyond speech, when there are no words to express the depths of what we are going thru. Which is precisely why we turn intensely to the Lord and the experience of His presence marks us.” The Lord’s presence is strong and that experience changes and will change everything.

Like so many others, God used Darrin to bring me closer to Him. Without the Lord’s work through Darrin and The Journey, I have no idea where my life would be right now. I am without words and so sad. My heart is broken for the loss of an exceptional pastor, loving husband, and devoted father. I am praying continuously for his wife, children, family, Seacoast Church, and all who knew and loved him. May God’s peace be with you.

Though our hearts ache from this unexpected news and we grieve with and for the beautiful family he leaves behind, we count it a privilege and blessing that God gave us the opportunity to know and learn from Pastor Darrin. His influence in our lives was immense and for that we will be ever grateful. His impact was far reaching and we know his legacy will continue to bring people to Christ. We pray that Aime and the kids will cling to the Hope we have in Jesus that Pastor Darrin always spoke of and in it find peace, strength, shelter, courage and the light to carry on through these dark and difficult days. We are so sorry for your loss, Patrick family. We love you.


2020-05-11 10:43:32

Darrin blessed our family tremendously by co-authoring the book For the City with Matt Carter. We read this at a time when we were transitioning churches and denominations, and it helped us see God's heart for those around us. Thank you, Jesus, for calling Darrin to minister to the body of Christ. Oh Jesus, you can take up his wife and children into your arms. You embraced children when you walked among us. Who like you is able to carry along his family now? Their souls, Lord, keep them in your loving, gentle, protective, tender, affectionate care. Give them a greater appetite for heaven and Jesus Christ. Fill them will your comfort by the power of the Holy Spirit. You are the Comforter, we can ask no greater comfort. We love you. Keep them, Jesus. Advocate for them. In your Name and by your grace, Mark

Like so many others, we are praying for Amie & her children. We are deeply saddened to hear of Darrin’s sudden passing. He was truly a remarkable man & leader. His life impacted so many. His love for healthy pastors & churches was a point of common ministry emphasis ... as was our mutual love for the great game of baseball. Darrin had that rare gift of winning over the room with his smile & even more so with his message. We are praying for the Seacoast staff & church family too.

Pastor Darrin made such a difference in our lives. He came at a time when we wanted to leave the church. He spoke from the heart - about everyday struggles, interjected with the right amount of humor but always bringing it back to our Savior. He was genuine. We looked forward to every time he spoke and were truly disappointed if we missed one of his services. Our regret was not telling him how meaningful his sermons were to us. Please accept our deepest condolences and prayers for your family's loss. He is missed.


2020-05-15 12:38:55

Although I never met Darrin I know him both through others and through my own struggle to integrate my successes and failures as a pastor. I am grieving for and with his family and friends.

We have known the Patricks for only the past couple of years through the boys’ baseball team, but hanging out with such a genuine guy like Darrin was a big part of what made spending so much time at the ballpark so enjoyable. We grieve with Amie, Drew, and the entire Patrick family but rejoice in the salvation our Savior provides. May He bring you peace.

We are so terribly sad over Darrin’s passing. While we have gotten to know the Patricks only over the past couple of years through the boys’ baseball team, hanging out with such a genuine guy like Darrin was a big part of what made spending so much time at the ballpark so enjoyable. We grieve for Amie, Drew, and the entire Patrick family but rejoice in the salvation our Savior provides. May He bring you peace.

Pastor Darrin was amazing. We were at The Journey from 2009 - 2017. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. He is very very missed. :( We will keep The Patrick Family in our prayers.

I first met Pastor Darrin at the Hanley Church location and continued at Tower Grove and West County. I had never experienced teaching like his before! And I never have since! I left the Journey when DP did. His words and humility and love of family and Jesus will impact me for the rest of my life. Thank you Patrick family for sharing your husband and father with so many. I can’t imagine your pain, and I’m so sorry. I take solace in knowing that we will all see him again. Sending much love and support to each of you. God bless❤️

I first met Pastor Darin at the Hanley Road church. I followed him to Tower Grove and I also spent some time at West County. I had never heard teachings and the word like Darrin shared... and I never have since I left the Journey when he did. He was so authentic and transparent and passionate about his family and Jesus. He was so impactful in my walk with the Lord. Thank you for supporting and sharing your husband and father with me and so many others. Please know he has left an incredible legacy through you 5 and the thousands of people he brought to our Savior! I can’t imagine the depth of your loss and sorrow, I’m so sorry. I am sending you love and prayers... as I write this and very shortly after enjoying the Seacoast memorial, the skies opened and showered me and joined in my tears for your family and my favorite Pastor... Darrin Patrick❤️

Seacoast and GriefShare has helped me so tremendously in dealing with my own grief of losing my husband who was so young and unexpected. I want to give back and knowing what struggles and sadness the Patrick family must be going through at this time, it's heart breaking but God is in control. His comfort will come in tangible ways like He did for me.

We spent time with Amie and Darrin during their Kansas City years. We have sweet memories of their time here. Darrin invested in our oldest son, Joel who was in high school during that time. His impact on Joel's life made the difference in his spiritual destiny. Our whole family was better spiritually as a result of their ministry here. We are grieving alongside the Patrick family

Nelson Wolff

2020-05-18 01:43:15

Pastor Darrin was my first minister. I accepted Christ as my savior 11 years ago after his Easter sermon and we high fived. I took my wife on our first date to hear him preach. Amie wrote a wonderful essay in Christian marriage that we took before being married. Our love, sympathies and prayers are with the entire Patrick family.

Pastor Darrin was an inspiration to myself and my family... many of whom don't even live in the Charleston area. After losing our son recently I found myself leaning hard on the words that I had the blessing to hear to hear him speak. His candor, honesty and ability to communicate was unparalleled. Our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and the whole Seacoast family. I will miss seeing him back stage. God bless..

Jenny Green

2020-05-20 00:26:39

Darrin Patrick was gifted by God as a teacher and communicator. I understood the Bible context, the people and the time period when he taught. His message about wrestling with God made me come home and read the Bible to see what happened beforehand and after. I gained a tremendous understanding through the knowledge he shared. We miss him deeply. Our hearts break for the family, we will continue to pray for all of you.

Pastor Darrin will be greatly missed! Brian and I truly appreciated and benefited from his " real" and thought provoking preaching style. I often joked to Brian that my "spiritual IQ" increased with each message I listened to! We respected his transparency and authenticity in the sharing of his restoration journey...for it is one that we all share to some degree. Our prayers are with Amie and the children as they navigate this loss ...wishing you all peace and comfort in your memories made together! In Sympathy, Julia and Brian Hart

Darrin was a huge source of encouragement to me in the earliest days of our church plant when we were first connecting with Acts 29 some 14 years ago now. Our beginning was a difficult one, and Darrin (and Acts 29) helped make it less so. I am deeply grateful for him for that; he will be missed. We are grieving with you all.

Jen Zink

2020-05-21 19:23:03

Like he did for so many, Darrin encouraged and challenged my faith through his gift of teaching and vision for how the church should impact community. In Phoenix, my pastor had been mentored by Darrin so becoming a member of The Journey when I moved back to St. Louis was the easiest church home decision I've ever made. Many prayers and much love to the Patrick Family.

Michael Prasher

2020-05-25 12:54:47

Darrin was one of our favorite pastors... EVER. He was so smart and brought a sense of humor to Scripture that we appreciated and could relate. He made the Bible come to life for us and showed us how relevant God’s word still is today. My husband bought his book the Dude’s Guide to Marriage and we’ve only attended 1 after church event, which was the marriage night he and Amie did at Seacoast. My husband had the pleasure of serving them at the Boathouse restaurant at the end of a very long weekend for them. He could tell they were exhausted but they couldn’t be more kind. He wanted them to enjoy their night and say thank you for giving so much to us. Our prayers are with the Patrick family at this time. He has forever imprinted in our hearts. He is at rest with our Lord. God be with you.


2020-05-26 14:18:32

I first heard Darrin preach at The Journey, after I had moved from Charleston (and Seacoast) to St. Louis and was thrilled to find a church with such powerful teaching. Ten years later in Charleston, I was so excited when Darrin joined Seacoast, and his teaching continued to mean so much. Wishing his family much peace.

Kim Childs

2020-06-04 06:11:30

My daughter was so excited when she found The Journey after living in St Louis for about 5 years. Whenever my husband and I visited from Portland, OR, we went to church with our daughter. We loved his sermons, his human approach, and the reality he understood in light of The Bible. Everything he preached was straight out of The Bible. What a real guy. Praying for his wife and children as they mourn the loss of their adorable husband/dad. Life can beat us down. Being a Pastor puts a person in such a position of scrutiny. God Bless.


2020-06-09 12:04:32

Our family is forever grateful for the impact Darrin had on our faith walk at The Journey. Amie, Glory, Grace, Drew, and Delainey - we grieve for you and pray that Jesus will comfort and show you His love in endless ways.


2020-06-15 04:21:26

Our family is so grateful for Darrin and his leadership and faithfulness while we were at the Journey. My wife and I grew so much in our faith while under his leadership. Prayers for Amie and the family.

Dawn Dahmer

2020-06-24 17:28:49

My family and I first met Darrin at The Journey in 2011. First visit, we knew that we wanted to become members. We loved the diversity and love we felt there. His sermons challenged me to be a better Christian and to look to Christ, not myself . I will truly miss him and I will continuously pray for Amie and their children


2020-07-03 19:51:04

It's one thing to hear the word, it's another for it to stick to your soul. Darrin's sermons did that, and we are blessed by hearing him preach. My two current favorite verses that stick to my soul are Judges 6: 12, When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, "The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." And Deuteronomy 33:25, The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze and your strength will equal your days. Amie, we pray for your family and you who we see as mighty warriors with a home as strong as iron and bronze.

I am so sorry for your loss. In fact I am sorry for all that we have lost with his passing. You, your family and Pastor Patrick are in my prayers.

We are deeply saddened at the news of Darrin's passing, and though bittersweet, we are thankful to be able to contribute. Matthew remember's so many of his challenging sermons, The Dude's Guide, The Affordable Christmas, Cardinals Baseball Chaplain, and the excitement of launching Tower Grove. Carrie loved her time working for The Journey and even house-sitting and dog-sitting for you. I loved Darrin's infectious desire to see St Louis loved and changed for the sake of the Gospel. Love God, Love People, Love the City. We love the Patrick family and will never forget Darrin, and are praying for all the Patricks that are grieving this loss.

It's one thing to hear the word, it's another for it to stick to your soul. Darrin's sermons did that, and we are blessed by hearing him preach. My two current favorite verses that stick to my soul are Judges 6: 12, When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, "The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." And Deuteronomy 33:25, The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze and your strength will equal your days. Amie, we pray for your family and you who we see as mighty warriors with a home as strong as iron and bronze. We pray for God's blessings of ..immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine- Eph. 3:20.

My family and I first met Darrin at The Journey in 2011. First visit, we knew that we wanted to become members. We loved the diversity and love we felt there. His sermons challenged me to be a better Christian and to look to Christ, not myself . I will truly miss him and I will continuously pray for Amie and their children
