Patrick Kilgo grew up in south Florida and moved to Georgia when he was 15. Michelle is a native of Georgia. They met in the summer of 1993 after enrolling in the same history class at the University of Georgia.
Pat & Michelle married in 1996 and lived in Massachusetts, North Carolina, Georgia and Wisconsin. Their four children are Robert, Elisabeth, David and Anna Claire. Pat & Michelle received a deep understanding of God’s Grace after reading Things That Differ by C.R. Stam in 2004.They started a church in their home in the Atlanta area in 2007 and ministered there until 2012.
In 2006 they began to pray about entering the mission field. Michelle was greatly influenced by the story of Jim Elliot, a missionary killed by the Auca Indians of Ecuador in 1956, and his wife Elisabeth Elliot who continued to minister the gospel to the Aucas. In 2009 Michelle joined her first short-term mission trip to Kenya and her desire to reach people with the gospel of Christ intensified. In 2010, Pat and Robert spent two weeks in Kenya also leaving with a greater burden to reach the nations with the gospel of Grace. Upon return, the Kilgos prayed for 6 months about entering full time, cross-cultural mission work.
In January 2011, the Kilgos decided to become missionaries with TCM. They moved to Wisconsin to receive training at Berean Bible Institute and started deputation in 2013.
