Hamilton Family

Over the past 40 years the Hamiltons have enjoyed making music together on the children’s audio adventure series Patch the Pirate. From the start, the ministry was a family affair with Ron at the helm voicing Captain Patch, his wife Shelly voicing Sissy Seagull, and each of their children playing sailors on the merry crew. In recent years Ron and Shelly’s son-in-law and daughter, Adam and Megan Morgan have taken over the writing and producing, but most of the family are still involved in bringing the stories to life. Since 2016, the Hamilton Family has also released several music albums together and enjoy continuing the family tradition in ministry.
