Murdock joins American Bible Society’s Ministry Advancement team in new role

American Bible Society has named Patrick “Pat” Murdock as Vice President, Catalyst.

In his new role, Murdock will focus on mobilizing national and global philanthropic partnerships and accelerating ministry impact. He will directly support American Bible Society President Robert L. Briggs and Senior Vice President for Ministry Advancement John Clause by casting vision and building campaigns for a variety of American Bible Society initiatives.

Murdock joined American Bible Society in 2015. He served first as Managing Director and then as Executive Director/Founder of the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center. Through his visionary leadership, he oversaw the design, development, and 2021 launch of this new world-class attraction on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, the birthplace of America. In addition, he helped launch a suite of resources, including the Faith & Liberty Trail App, the Faith & Liberty Rediscovered podcast, and the Faith and Liberty Bible.

Later, Murdock served as Vice President of the Faith & Liberty Initiative, a national platform for Bible advocacy that is poised to mobilize a new generation of biblically inspired Changemakers.

Before joining American Bible Society, Murdock served as the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Issachar Initiative and as Managing Director for Development for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Prior to this, he had a successful 21-year sales and marketing career with Deluxe Corporation, a Fortune 1000 company.

Murdock is a graduate of New Mexico State University and received his MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management and Regent University. He and his wife, Holly, have been married for 32 years and are the proud parents of six children: three biological and three adopted from China and Ethiopia.

We congratulate Pat on his new role and look forward to seeing how God uses his leadership to guide American Bible Society’s ministry!
