Meet The Senior Team

There exists within the ministry of World Prayr a senior advisory team comprised of pastors, business leaders and ministry leaders from the major protestant denominations. They would serve as what most would consider as a team of business consultants so to speak. They provide counsel, wisdom, support and guidance for our Executive Team. They also provide major accountability and let them know when we as a ministry are not performing and going in the right direction.

We are honored and blessed to have these men serving with us. Take time and get to know them.

Pastor Pat Badstibner

Pastor Patrick Badstibner who, while attending Bible College, felt God was leading him to go into business for himself. He would go on to become an award-winning landscape architect and landscape designer. As well as a former Who's Who of American Business. Who, after using his passion in the business world to build a multimillion dollar business, retired. He now serves as the Executive Pastor of World Prayr.

We at World Prayr, that know him well, see him as another Job and Paul combined. His sister said he was a born a leader and he has shown this to be true. Although he started out a leader in the world, God had other plans for this life and his gift.

First, Pat would have to go through the refiner's fire. Many of the trials and tests Pat had to go through were much like Jobs. His pastor would tell you that he knows Job personally. Pat has a disease that has his left him deaf and with only no balance. Like Paul, this is the thorn in his side.

Out of everything he, his wonderful wife Becky, and their two children have been through came the birth of World Prayr. This is Pat's true calling to leadership.
