Corinne Patricia Cobbs, affectionately called "Sister Pat," is a first lady with many talents who wears many hats and does not take any of them lightly. She is confident & poised and has a flare for being positive. She works very closely and diligently with her husband, directing the choir and music ministry at Blessed Trinity and is a very powerful songstress in her own right.

Sister Pat has held the position of administrator and surgical coordinator for Scripps-Mercy hospital in San Diego for 40 years.  She is well liked by all, co-workers and church members alike.

Pat is a native Memphian and grew up with three brothers and two sisters.  She is the daughter of famed choir director Johnny Ray Buntyn. She most assuredly knows the Lord and serves Him with everything she has. She is both extremely proud and very happy to stand with her husband in whatever the Lord will have them to do.



Shebra Latrese Ward is a 32 year old Flint, Michigan who accepted her calling at a very young age and began working in the ministry doing whatever her hands could find to do. She began to preach and minister around the age of 10. In October 2007 she was ordained as a Minister at Hands of Love City of Refuge Church in Flint, MI (her home church) under the leadership of Pastor Willie Ruth Moore. January 2015 was ordained as Minister at Blessed Trinity Ministries West in National City, CA under the leadership of Bishop Ronald O. Cobbs Sr. Her hope is to always inspire someone and remind them that the Christian walk is not easy, but with total surrenderance to God, life is made better.
