Elder Pat McCoy
Elder Patricia A. McCoy answered the call to ministry in 1989. She completed ministry coursework at Rhema Bible College, and was ordained and licensed by Pastor Roy Roddy at Now Faith Christian Center of Raytown, Missouri.
Minister Pat developed her musical gifts by participating in several local choirs and by attending music and arts seminars. In 1990, she recorded her first album and began traveling the country, ministering by teaching, preaching and singing — winning souls and setting the captives free. In 1992, Minister Pat was led by God to move to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she joined Jesus Christ Abundant Life Christian Center, and worked in full-time ministry there for 13 years. During her tenure, Elder Pat was honored to receive an evangelism license and ordination.
In 2004, Elder McCoy founded The Elders Ministries, Inc., a not-for-profit ministry. She is also the Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors of Reach One Ministries, Inc. of Charlotte, North Carolina.
