Tree of Life Outreach Ministries is born out of a desire to see God’s people come into a fuller understanding of who Jesus Christ is and a deeper revelation of that truth. We emphasize the importance of relationship and exist to encourage each others gifts and their role in the great commission.
Brother Edgar and Sister Patty Rodriguez have been married for 36 wonderful years. They are blessed with three amazing children- Eric, Stephen, and Kailyn. Edgar served in the United States Navy for 7 years and worked as an Engineer for the bulk of his professional career. Both Brother Edgar and Sister Patty came to Christ in 1991. After 17 years of serving God through their local church, the Rodriguezs were led to step outside of conventional ministry and open a restaurant. In 2008, the wHoly Chicken began operating, reaching out, and evangelizing the local community through discipleship, free meals, and teaming up with other like minded ministries to facilitate events and outreaches throughout the year. In May of 2015, wHoly Chicken closed its outreach. Brother Edgar & Sister Patty soon partnered with Christian Business Men’s Conference (CBMC) on their first mission trip to Ecuador. In 2016, the Rodriguezs continue to be missionaries in the city of York, PA and are willing to go wherever the Lord sends them.
