Pat Downey


Pat and his wife Jill, along with their son Jackson, have attended Oasis since 2005.  Active in many ministries and programs, Oasis has been a great place to put down roots and grow.  During the week, Pat supports contractors, builders, company representatives and architects around the Western US.  Snow skiing since 1983, Pat was once racing down the ski slopes, but now volunteers with the National Ski Patrol at Crystal Mountain.  Summer afternoons Pat and Jill can be found kayaking around the Sound. Knowing and trusting that we have hope in the middle of struggles, Phillipians 4:13 is an important verse to Pat.
