Darin Patzer

I like the idea of “being a disciple of Christ…cleverly disguised as a radio station manager.”

One of my Favorite Bible texts is: Proverbs 3:5,6. I’ve seen in my own life how if I trust in the Lord with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding, and in all my ways acknowledge Him…that He will direct my paths. I’ve seen how God has guided and blessed me and my family as we seek first the Kingdom of God. We try to seek God and spend some time with Him each morning, and then to try to recognize His presence with us throughout each day. What if a day is wasted if we have not spent some time seeking God?

With a couple of brief exceptions, I have lived nearly my entire life here in the Pacific NW, and consider Spokane my homeland, and my “mission field.” My goal is that Spokane be a Lighthouse to the rest of the country and to the world, for Jesus Christ!

I have been married to my best friend Natalie, since 1998 and we have a 20-something girl, a late-teen boy, a Cavapoo dog (Poco), occasionally some chickens and still one cat, last I checked.

I’m a sports and fitness enthusiast, and I enjoy hiking out around Spokane, like to Big Rock (which is also near where our Shine 104.9 tower is located). Summer is a favorite time of year as I enjoy golf, tennis/pickleball, softball, water sports, hiking, biking country roads. We enjoy the lovely seasons of the PNW.

Having experienced the loss of a much loved family member, and dear friends, I live in eager anticipation for the “second coming” of Jesus on resurrection morning. I am merely a traveler, this world is not my home. I know I am a broken sinner, but by grace I hope my life will give as many others as possible a happier picture of God our Father and his Son Jesus Christ - so they will want to join us in relationship in heaven, too!
