Mary K. Sims is a native of Kansas City, Kansas. She is the second oldest daughter of the late Superintendent Moses Cofield and Missionary Hattie Cofield. She is a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Mary has served in ministry with her husband, Bishop Ervin Sims, Jr., at the Mount Carmel Church of God in Christ for the last 32 years. She presided as Director of Music and Media Department and Coordinator of the Membership Training Class.
She is also a Lay Counselor and Supervisor of Women’s Ministries.
Mary is a licensed evangelist and touches the lives
of many beyond the walls of Mount Carmel. Mary serves as keynote speaker
for Retreats, Seminars, Revivals, Conventions, and Women’s Day
services. She has ministered in Bristol, England; Cardiff, Wales; Ghana
and Togo, West Africa, and throughout the United States. One of her
greatest joys is saying Yes to God and traveling to Africa each year
with her husband on the missions’ trip and ministering to the
women there. This year will be her 10th trip to Africa. The congregation
is blessed as she ministers in song and word every fifth Sunday. Through
her leadership, God has birthed the Mount Carmel Women’s Fellowship,
“Women of Excellence”, which meets once a month. As a result
there has been unity and spiritual growth among the women.
Mary is a highly anointed and passionate woman of God, whose time has come to declare the unsearchable riches of the kingdom of God. Her greatest goal is to do the will of the Father and make a difference in the kingdom of God.
