Patti Mauree Pendleton was born in Butte, Montana, raised in California and resides in Columbus, Ohio. Patti was three years old, when her mother received a call from the hospital, stating her father died of a ruptured kidney. That moment, Patti’s life changed forever. Her mother was a foreigner in the United States and now alone with two small children. The situation was extremely overwhelming which brought her mother to alcoholism and made the bad choice of deserting Patti and her brother in a motel room.
Patti was diagnosed with depression at age 3. Yet in the midst of her diagnosis she was baptized at the age 5. Patti started the long journey of foster care placement. She was tossed around like a rag doll until finally adopted at age 13. Patti experienced thoughts of suicide and didn’t understand why she was alive. Patti dropped out of school as she began the road to self-destruction. She began spiraling out of control making extremely poor choices that would carry into adulthood. She found herself alone with three children, enduring abusive relationships one after another. One day, Patti received the worst news from doctors. The doctors informed Patti, her youngest child had a life threatening cancer and would not make it. She never gave up hope, even though, suicidal tendencies crept back upon her once again and unhappiness swallowed her whole. Patti dropped to her knees in despair.
She made the decision for Christ and was reborn at the age of 30. Christ changed her life. The unhappiness and years of depression left her immediately. Through her mistakes and severe pain through life; Patti began her journey back to the cross. She received her GED, continued her hard work, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Leadership/Ministry and Master’s Degree Theological Studies through Ohio Christian University. Patti founded Rescue Ministries International, a disciple based ministry.
