Mother Katherine Patterson

Church Mother

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

(Proverbs 31:25,26,31)


A mother's board consists of women called church mothers who have typically been longtime members of the congregation.

The entire Mother's Board remains a key auxiliary of Faith Temple. They have continued to touch many lives. They witness to the unsaved, pray continuously for the pastor and speak kind words to those in need.


• Church mothers mentor other women within the congregation who may be dealing with personal, spiritual or physical problems.

• Members of the mother's board may meet with a woman within the congregation to pray with her and offer spiritual advice for overcoming obstacles.

• Members of the mother's board support and pray for the pastor, church employees and the congregation.
