Senior Pastor Kathie | Pastor Tony | Pastor Kevin | Pastor Janet
Deaconess Terry| Deaconess Roseanna
Pastor Kathie was born and raised in Bay Shore, L.I., New York, the eldest of four daughters; Kathie received Jesus as her Lord and Savior at the young age of 12 in her mother’s hometown of Princeton, West Virginia. From that moment on her life was dedicated to serving her Lord. She gave herself to the studying of the Word of God and learning the guitar. Though her family went through a difficult time of hardship and divorce Kathie's pursuit of the Lord became even stronger. Her love for the Word and passion for music in worship opened a door of ministry and at 16 years old along with her sister Sharon, became a part of a gospel singing group called The Kings Daughters.
In 1979, Kathie became a part of a local church where she served for 25 years. She served in the music ministry, pioneered the church choir, helped establish and taught in the Church’s Christian School (K-12) and was overseer to the Women’s Ministry. Her ministries also included preaching and teaching, counseling, leadership training and outreach.
During this time Kathie was diagnosed with a very rare kidney disorder that almost took her life. This was a 13 year battle filled with pain caused by recurring spasms in her kidneys and the formation of stones, sand and gravel. This resulted in chronic kidney infections and the eventual implanting of a Medtronic morphine pump in order to help control the pain. This was the most difficult time in Kathie’s life resulting in much loss both physically and personally. Yet “through it all” the Lord’s hand prevailed in her life! Through much prayer and perseverance Kathie received her miracle! The 13 year battle was over and the pain was gone!
Not long after that Kathie found herself in a new place in her life and in her walk with God. His calling and purpose for her life was beginning to unfold and New Hope International Ministries was about to be born. In 2005, the Lord opened a door to begin a work in Bay Shore, L.I. the “Heart of the South Shore.” After strong prophetic confirmation through the Lord’s prophets and apostolic ministry, New Hope had its first service on November 6, 2005. Pastor Kathie was ordained through prophetic presbytery and the laying on of hands as the Senior Pastor of NHIM, along with six other men and women as the founding elders of the work. Today the church has grown and reaches hundreds through its outreach and various other ministries.
Pastor Kathie is also the proud mother of three beautiful children, Samuel, Daniel and Rachel and one grandchild, Samuel Jr, all of whom serve the Lord today.
