Patrick Morley

Executive Chairman, Man in the Mirror

For decades Patrick Morley has been regarded as one of America’s most respected authorities on the unique challenges and opportunities facing men. Through his speaking and writing, he is a tireless advocate for men, encouraging and inspiring them to change their lives in Christ.

In 1973, Patrick founded Morley Properties, which for several years was one of Florida’s one hundred largest privately held companies. During this time, he was the president or managing partner of fifty-nine companies and partnerships.

In 1986, Patrick started The Man in the Mirror Bible Study, which has grown to include approximately 10,000 men—100 men live in Orlando, Florida, and the others online in all fifty states and throughout the world.

In 1989, he wrote The Man in the Mirror, a landmark book rooted in his own search for purpose and a deeper relationship with God. With over three million copies in print, The Man in the Mirror captured the imaginations of men worldwide and was selected as one of the hundred most influential Christian books of the twentieth century. Altogether, Patrick is the best-selling author of twenty books and more than 750 articles.

In 1991, Patrick founded Man in the Mirror, headquartered in Orlando, Florida. They’ve helped 35,000 churches impact the lives of 12,000,000 men worldwide. Their vision is “for every church to disciple every man” through local area directors who help churches disciple men more effectively.

“The ministry of Man in the Mirror exists,” says Patrick Morley, “in answer to the prayers of all those wives, mothers, and grandmothers who have for decades been praying for the men in their lives.”

Patrick Morley graduated with honors from the University of Central Florida. He has earned a PhD in management, completed postgraduate studies at the Harvard Business School and Oxford University, and graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary.
