Pastor(s) Patrick and Sharonda lead Covenant City Church, a thriving church that encourages the discovering of one’s purpose, developing a plan of action, and doing the work of the ministry! Together they live in Arizona and are proud parents to their children Kaylah (Samuel King Jones) and Elijah. They are also happy grandparents to the beautiful young worshipper Autumn Rose Jones.
In the beginning,
Pastor Patrick was born in San Antonio, Texas on March 25, 1974, while his
lovely wife, Sharonda Michelle Robinson, daughter of the late Bishop Dr.
Brunswick Derone Robinson & Pastor Brenda Robinson, and literally the woman
of his dreams (he will tell you the story if you ask), was born in Memphis,
Tennessee on October 11, 1980, six years later. They met in Phoenix, Arizona.
He proposed to Sharonda and her daughter, formerly Kaylah Danae Jones, at Word
of Abundant Life Christian Center, her father’s church, in front of a crowd of
family and friends on March 10, 2002. They were happily married on November 2,
2002 and a year later celebrated the birth of their only begotten son, Elijah
serving at Word of Abundant Life Christian Center as youth (14 years) and
worship leaders, they were licensed and ordained on June 18, 2017 by Apostle
Johnnie Smith (Apostle Julia Smith), Chief Apostle of United Holiness
Assemblies International (UHAI). Pastor Mayes currently holds a Bachelor of
Arts degree from the Arizona State University in Global Business, a Bachelor of
Arts in Biblical Studies, and a Masters in Ministry from Life Point Christian
University, while Pastor Sharonda received her Associates in Accounting degree
from the University of Phoenix.
Patrick is a
singer/songwriter and author who loves sports (Cowboys, Texas Longhorns,
Yankees, and Spurs), ice cream, and a good book. He enjoys fishing, reading, and spending time
with his family. Sharonda loves spending
time with her family, McDonald’s French fries, and modeling. Both of them will
continue the Lord’s mandate to reach all, teach all, and disciple all for the
Kingdom of God. Their desire for people of every generation, race, and
nationality to encounter God will spread throughout the state of Arizona and
beyond, for the glory of the one and only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Thank
you for being a part of our A”Mayes”ing lives!
