Remnant Ministries International (formerly known as Mercy Seat Ministries) was founded by Patrick and Karen Schatzline in 1997 after serving as youth pastors at three incredible churches. Pat and Karen launched MSM in order to fulfill the great commission. Since the launch of RMI (formerly MSM) in 1997, Pat and Karen have become two of America’s leading church speakers, revivalists, youth communicators, and university and conference speakers. With a schedule that stays full year-round, Pat & Karen have established a reputation for bringing purpose through the power of Christ, and a longing to grow deeper in the presence of God. They minister in churches, schools, universities, stadiums, outreaches, retreats, camps, leadership conferences, men’s & women’s conferences, and marriage retreats. They both travel globally seeing salvations, miracles, and signs & wonders. They have ministered at some of the largest youth conferences in the world. They travel often to Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Venezuela, and Canada fulfilling the great commission. Remnant Ministries International also has several evangelists that travel the nation under their covering. Pat & Karen truly believe in raising up voices to transform a generation through the presence of God.
