Patrick is a Physician and Minister, bringing healing to the body, soul and spirit. He currently works as a Hospitalist at MercyOne Des Moines, Iowa. He lives in Iowa, USA with his wife, Ma-Ayuk, and three daughters— Michaela, Gabriella and Daniella.

Patrick Oben Ministries Inc. was founded with a Vision of “building a glorious Church” by the teaching of the Word of God through the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. Our Mission is ” to equip and empower people with the Word of God through teaching, publishing and outreaches to recovery facilities such as addiction centers and  homeless shelters”. The Word of God is able to bring freedom from physical and spiritual bondages, healing to the brokenness of human hearts, restoration of purpose and fulfillment as well as bringing us to a rich and fulfilling relationship with our heavenly Father. It is the singular desire of our ministry is to bring men and women to experience the presence and power of the living Christ through the knowledge of His Word by the working of His Holy Spirit.

We recognize building a ministry as such requires both human and financial resources. We believe in giving and partnership to support the work of the ministry but also recognize that money has become both a distortion of the Gospel and a distraction from the purpose of Ministry in some circles today. We purposefully do not solicit “financial seeds” or make appeals for money. We welcome financial and technical support from those whose hearts are in line with the vision and mission of the work the Lord has given us to fulfill.

Our ministry currently has different arms to bring about the fulfillment of our mission. Some are currently functional while others are still in development which will be established as the Lord enlarges our human and financial resources through God-sent Spirit-filled partners.

I start reading the Bible and in the bible and when I arrive to “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.” I’m confused!! Can God be tired?

Dear Pastor,
Thank you for your message on the Riches of the Gentiles. I was studying the Word this morning and the Lord led me to several verses until I saw Isaiah 60:11. I have never seen it this way before despite reading it severally. I searched up “riches of the gentiles ” and got to your website and read your message for more clarity. It’s amazing and I’m excited to see how His word is playing out in my life. In vrs1, he said His light will come upon me, and it did. He gave me an idea while driving. Today that idea is manifesting into vrs 11. Thank you for the prayer at the end of the message. Join faith with me to believe that what He has started, He also will perfect!
God bless you and strengthen your ministry.

Hello Dr. Oben, I was recently at ORHC the part of July and you came to my room to discharge me but in talking with you I felt you had more compassion and caring than I have ever felt in all my many illnesses. You planted the seeds in my heart and I still think about everything you said and I would truly like to go further with this but I am not able to drive and need assistance with o2 plus my husband is a non believer so I’m not sure which way to go. I have been reading the devotionals and meditating on the healing scrptures, is there anything you can suggest? Thank you, Twyla
