On Saturday April 9, 1994, Shelia Marie along with her mother Minister Queen Person had a women’s prayer breakfast at the Garner Road YMCA in Raleigh North Carolina. This event took place the Saturday before Easter. There were over sixty women at the women’s fellowship that morning which was intended to be a one-time event, however, God had a different plan. He impressed upon Shelia Marie to have the women’s prayer breakfast monthly that she named God’s Women’s of Fellowship that was later changed to God’s Women of Destiny which was a result of the ministry being destined for greatness. The ministry was called God’s Women of Destiny for over 15 years.
In March of 2014, God directed Shelia Marie to go in another direction for the ministry that He birthed in her, which is now Shelia Marie Ministries (SMM) and the women’s ministry name is now Sisters Moving Mountains (SMM).
Sisters Moving Mountains meets the 1st Saturday of every month for fellowship and spiritual impartation at God’s House of Truth and Deliverance located at 1418 Aversboro Road, Suite 204 in Garner North Carolina under the leadership of Pastor Shelia Marie.
For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass: he shall have whatsoever he saith. Mark 11:23
Sisters Moving Mountains is a ministry for hurt and abused women, yet, will welcome anyone that would like to fellowship with the ministry. For over twenty years Shelia Marie has been ministering to women that have been hurt and have faced many challenges in their lives. Shelia Marie knows from experience how it feels to be hurt, abused, and abandoned as well as to have struggles and disappointments in life. Shelia Marie can relate to women who feel as if life has passed them by. Shelia Marie is a loving, caring and compassionate person who seeks God’s will for her life as well as in the lives of other’s. She has learned from her own private struggles to have compassion and love for women and anyone that may need a shoulder to lean own.
Sisters Moving Mountains has two annual events each year. In April of each year the ministry gathers to celebrate its anniversary and in November of each year Sisters Moving Mountains hosts their Annual Women’s Conference with various speakers and fellowship with women from different congregations. Lunch is served at the annual Women’s Conference.
God allowed Shelia Marie to birth Sound Mind Ministry (SMM) in 2014. Sound Mind Ministry is a 501-3C nonprofit agency that ministers to the tangible and emotional needs of women and children. Sound Mind Ministry partners with the Salvation Army, Raleigh Rescue Mission and the Department of Social Services to assist them with their mission of helping people that are in need.
Sound Mind Ministry’s vision is to provide housing to women and children, assist with food and clothing, educational and spiritual needs.
For God has not given us the spirt of fear, but of power and of Love and of a sound mind.
Shelia Marie Ministries (SMM) is under the leadership of Apostle Sharon Bryant-Sanders, The Faith Center Raleigh and Wilson Mills, NC. Shelia Marie is grateful for her mother Minister Queen Person who is still standing with her helping to push the vision that God has birthed in her. Shelia Marie is grateful for the many women who offers support and that have placed their trust in her and the vision that God has planted in her. Shelia Marie preached her initial sermon under the leadership of Bishop Cheryl Grissom who has impacted her life in many ways.
Shelia Marie is thankful for her Overseer, Apostle Sharon Bryant-Sanders and her Mother Minister Queen Person who pushes her to be all that she can be and do in God.
To God be all the GLORY for the great things that He has done!
