Patrick K. Fenstermacher
Volleyball Club Director, Lehigh Valley
Patrick Fenstermacher has developed the Push The Rock volleyball club into one of the top clubs in the Lehigh Valley area. He strives to provide a stable spiritual environment for athletes, coaches, and parents. He sees part of his job as combining coaching and teaching so that he can develop athletes that are encouraged to grow in mental and physical volleyball skills and are grounded with a spiritual set of values and morals.
Before coming on staff with Push The Rock in 2011, Patrick purchased his family farm and worked hard on the farm and in his business, PKF Industries, Inc.
Patrick played volleyball throughout high school at Brandywine Heights and his team won the 1985 first Berks County Champions. He went on to play for Penn State on both the competitive and club teams. He has continued to play and coach ever since. Patrick holds a bachelor degree in Agriculture Mechanization and Masters in Agriculture Engineering and Biological Sciences from Penn State.
Patrick attended church for many years with his wife, Gail, before he became a Christian. Gail prayed for him for years and many men, including Pastor Wilhite, discussed his need to follow Christ. It wasn’t until a powerful sermon on hell that all of the prayers and conversations made sense and he chose to become a Christian.
