William Patterson (Pat) Hail,
Pastor / Executive Director
Pat Hail, Jr. was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.
During a service at his home church in 1979, God called him to full-time
ministry at age 21. Soon after Pat made his decision public, he
called to attend Grand Canyon
University (a non-denominational Christian college) in
Phoenix, Arizona. After majoring in Religion/Psychology in 1984, Pat
continued to fulfill his ministry calling.
With his passion for ministry, he began working in the church
early in life and as he grew spiritually he became more hands on
as a youth pastor, minister of students and
recreation. With a need to feed his family, his work
became bi-vocational. While mastering a variety of jobs,
he was enabled to aid in a range of ministry-related jobs
including construction projects for churches all the way up to
pastoring and leading church congregations. During the past fifteen years,
Pat served as senior
pastor for two Arizona churches.
Baptist Church, he discovered there was a real need for
Biblical Stewardship. He learned of the Biblical
Stewardship Series and tested it out in his own church,
concerned that it would be a "Crown" copycat. When he saw
that this series went beyond Crown's teaching to include our
responsibility to building up God's Kingdom through the church
and the people's lives that were impacted, he felt a strong
desire to do more.
In September 2006, after much prayer and counsel, Pat began a new path in his ministry
journey as the Pastor/Director of Biblical Stewardship Series (BSS). Pat now travels both
nationally and internationally, teaching and leading cluster
groups. He teaches, coaches, and mentors Christian Financial
Professionals, equipping them to not only teach the Biblical
Stewardship Series, but
utilize it as a ministry.
Community and professional involvement includes:
Arizona Southern Baptist Convention
Committee on Committees
Grand Canyon Association of Southern Baptist
DOEM Search Team & Executive Board Member
Central Association of Southern Baptists
Youth Ministries Team, Pastoral Ministries Team, Executive
Arizona Rising Suns Track Club

One of his biggest concerns for
the church today is that we as a society have moved far away
from the Bible and its teachings. Occupying our time now are
books and commentaries written by men, while forgetting that our
priority should be on studying and reading the Word of God.
Pat believes if the church would return to studying the Bible,
there would be a radical change in the lives of His people.
People need to be instructed on how to handle the Word of God,
rightly dividing the Word of Truth. In order to achieve this we
must gain a better understanding on the subject of Biblical
stewardship. This is done by an evaluation process of how we use
our personal time, talent, tithe, temple, and talk. Biblical
Stewardship is in essence discipleship, and discipleship is the
call of the church today.
Pat believes that scripture alone is the greatest manual for
life. Pat and Janet have three children- Courtney, Caleb,
Dylan, and they live in Phoenix, Arizona.

"All scripture is
given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: That the man of God
may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good
