Life experiences and her ability to be resilient in the face of personal losses have prepared and equipped Pastor Pat for the work of a Grief Recovery Specialist. Pastor Pat was introduced to the Grief Recovery Method in the year 2000. The program was so effective for her that she went on to get her certification in 2004 by the Grief Recovery Institute™.
Pastor Pat has been under the tutelage of Bishop F. J. Johnson, II since joining The House of the Lord in 1983.  During this time she served in many ministry roles as servant leader, one who serves others. Pastor Pat worked in corporate America for 30 years before joining the staff of The House of the Lord in 2004 and retiring in 2021.  Currently, Pastor Pat is developing an AfterCare Program for all grievers who are ready to take a step towards healing.
