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 partly raised in Saudi Arabia where his father worked in the oil industry. 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 met LDS missionaries in London and began learning about the church. Kearon 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.

Kearon delivered his first General Conference address in October 2010. 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 Clevedon, which is a town in North Somerset, England. In 2011, he was appointed as an Assistant Executive Director of the church's Priesthood and Media Services departments. From August 2012 to August 2015, he served as a counselor in the presidency of the church's Europe Area, then becoming the area's president in August 2015.[1] In May 2017, it was announced that Kearon would become a member of the Presidency of the Seventy at the beginning of August, with responsibility for the church's North America Northwest and North America West area.[2]
