Patrick Klamm

Children's Ministry Coordinator

After graduating from Bethel University with degrees in Psychology and Ministry, Patrick and his wife Kacie moved to South Bend. In the summer of 2018, Patrick joined the team at New City to direct our Bible Club ministry in Monroe Circle. He has a passion for youth ministry and has worked with kids in a variety of roles: as therapist, teacher, camp counselor, and coach. His ideal day would include a trip to a waterpark, fueled with milkshakes and French fries.
