Patrick Kearon (born 18 July 1961) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 2010. He is a member of the church's First Quorum of the Seventy.

Kearon was born in Carlisle, England. He was baptized into the LDS Church on Christmas Eve 1987. He was introduced to the church when he stayed with an LDS family in California; two years later, he ran into LDS missionaries in London and began learning about the church. He has worked in transportation, real estate and related fields. In the LDS Church, he has been the president of the Bristol England Stake and an area seventy.

He gave his first General Conference address in the October 2010 Conference. He spoke of being healed spiritually through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

Kearon and his wife, Jennifer Carole Hulme, whom he met while she was studying in London as a BYU student, are the parents of four children. At the time of his call as a general authority Kearon was living in Somerset, England. In 2011 he was appointed as an Assistant Executive Director of the church's Priesthood and Media Services departments.
