J. Phillip PattersonJ. Phillip Patterson

Phil Patterson has made a significant contribution to the present and future ministry of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children, specifically Boys Ranch Town, through the gift of ranch property in Arcadia. In 1998, Phil began the process of donating 172 acres, plus a house and support facilities. The Arcadia property has proven invaluable to the expansion of the ministry of Boys Ranch Town through the addition of an independent living program, and through the enhancement of our horse and beef program. Cottage residents from our four campuses have used the Arcadia property as a vacation destination and as a retreat center.

Phil Patterson has been associated with Boys Ranch Town for a number of years, and stated at the time of his gift of property that it is his desire to see children benefit from his efforts.

Phil Patterson and his family reside in north Oklahoma City. Phil is a banker, horse rancher, and investor. 12-02-03
