Pastor Nicholas Brandon Patterson was born on March 15, 1996 to Pastor Floyd and Carolyn Patterson Sr in Memphis, TN. Pastor Patterson has four siblings and 5 nieces and nephews and upcoming addition to the Patterson family. He is a graduate of Southwind High School in Memphis, TN and is currently a senior At Tennessee State University, studying Political Science with a minor in History. He was called into the ministry at an early age, preaching his first sermon at Foundation of Life Church and Christian Learning Center in Lamar, MS, under the leadership of Elder James T Patterson, and the title of his sermon was “A New Life Beginning.” Since then his calling of ministry has led him to many different leadership positions such as 100 black men community group, youth pastor, and president of many organizations. As a result of his effective leadership, he has been awarded and recognized as a National Youth Activist winner, Academic Hall-of-Famer, and President of the Year.
In his 11 years of ministry, he has been guided by the spirit of God and trained by his father Pastor Floyd Patterson Sr. (New Generation International Church) which has offered him several opportunities to preach the word of God. Upon reaching his academic goals here in Nashville, TN he was offered the opportunity to serve in the capacity of college pastor under the leadership of Elder Frank D. Stevenson Sr. (Saint Luke Primitive Baptist Church) in his tenure as college pastor he established a nonprofit organization called UPLIFT college ministry and afforded several opportunities to work with the leadership of the St. Luke Church.
In 2016, Pastor Patterson continued serving the people at the St. Luke church while they were undergoing pastoral transition by a sermonic presentation and congregational care. As a result of his steadfast love for the St. Luke family, in the month of July 2017, St. Luke's church family voted for Pastor Patterson to stand in the gap as Pastor-Elect of the Saint Luke Primitive Baptist Church. Since he has been Pastor over our flock, lives have been saved, changed, and restored, and we are continuing to grow as a body of Christ.
