Clint Patronella
Pastor, Direction and vision

By God's unmerited grace, Clint is an adopted son of God the Father, serving Jesus, being sent by the Spirit to make disciples in Greater Boston (Waltham). After completing a Masters in Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, Clint joined the staff at The Village Church as a Groups Pastor, ministering to men and women at the Dallas Northway campus.

In October 2012, Clint went to Boston for the first time to attend a conference and everything changed.  God had called Clint to the work of church planting while in seminary, but had yet to give him a location and a people. That weekend, the LORD stirred in Clint a burden for the people of Boston and set the Patronellas on a journey to plant in Waltham, a growing community along the Charles River just 9 miles west of downtown Boston.

Clint is part of the Seven Mile Road Network of churches, a family of churches advancing the good news of Jesus Christ by equipping spirit-led disciples to multiply gospel communities and plant gospel-centered churches devoted to the glory of God, the growth of the church, and the good of their neighborhood.

He is married to his best friend, Andea and together they have five beautiful children: Bryton, Haddon, Everett, Evangeline, and Emerson. They love reading, good eats, and conversations with friends.

Pastor, church planter

Having grown up in Massachusetts on Cape Cod, Jeremy and his wife, Liana, have an inherent love for the area and the people. Shortly after trusting Jesus in the summer of 2009, Jeremy felt called to ministry in his home area. In 2013, he and Liana moved to Dallas to attend Dallas Theological Seminary with the intention of returning home to take-part in church planting. 

Jeremy met Clint at a missions meeting at the Village Church while looking for a church home during his first few weeks in Dallas. After watching the plans for Seven Mile Road Waltham progress and praying for direction, the Lord's orchestration in the matter became clear and he, Liana and baby Noelle joined in the mission. 

Jeremy has a deep-rooted desire to see the gospel spread through church planting and displayed through caring leadership. Having spent three years in Dallas, training through seminary and the local church, he is happy to be back home and serving Waltham.



Lauren is wife to Kevin Sanders and stay-at-home/homeschool mom to their five amazing kids. Lauren has served as Children’s Ministry Director for a total of 8 years in two different churches and has been a part of church planting for over 10 years.

With her Early Childhood Education background, a passion for church planting, and a heart to love families in her community, Seven Mile Waltham is blessed to have her serve in this role.
