Meet Eddie Patat, the Treasurer for Chosen for Life's Board of Directors.

CFLM's Board Chair, Bryan Miller had the following to say about Eddie's dedication to CFLM:

"When we were first forming the initial Board for CFLM, there was no doubt in my mind about asking Eddie to be a part of the Board.  I had known Eddie for over 15 years both personally and professionally and knew that his servant's heart, love for the things of God, and his financial expertise were exactly what we needed.  Over the past 6 years, it has been great to watch how instrumental his service and leadership have been in getting CFLM to where we are today."
