Unashamed Ministries is a nonprofit organization based in the Lancaster County, PA area, existing to be the hands and feet of Jesus in providing donations, encouragement, and support for those in desperate need.
The desire to know God and to make Him known is immense within the lives of Patrick and Leanne Buckner. There is a passion and an awakening deep within their hearts to actively live out what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and to show the community the love of The Savior. Outreach opportunities and vision keep being poured out from the Holy Spirit on both Patrick and Leanne in order to accomplish one ultimate goal which is to point all people in the direction of who God is through living out an everlasting faith, and doing outreach for His Kingdom. For His glory.
Patrick is a South Jersey native who has been working as a local outreach and worship pastor in a church network in the southern end of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania since 2019. He is also a Christian singer/songwriter and has a music ministry called "Patrick Buckner Music", which stems from the verse in Romans that says, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek." One of the most prominent truths on Patrick's heart is that the Lord can meet anyone anywhere at anytime and he has seen that in worship, prayer, and outreach.
Leanne is originally from New Holland, Pennsylvania and she has numerous years experience in piecing together mission and outreach opportunities for the surrounding community. She applies her gift of graphic design for fliers and social media posts from her time working at the American Cancer Society in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Leanne's heart is for mission and for being the hands and feet of Jesus to the hurt and the broken. She is passionate about seeing people come together in unity all for the Kingdom of God to be furthered and for the ones He calls to be sent out.
Patrick and Leanne were married on August 28, 2021 and are both incredibly excited about the amazing things the Lord is going to do within their marriage and in the lives of others. They are also thrilled with the expectation of their first child, Caden Patrick Buckner, arriving this year in 2023!
