In the beginning of Patricia’s life, she had obstacles to overcome considering she was born with a whole in her heart. Her health was one thing that showed her how powerful her life would be, by giving it all to God.

Later in life her parents relocated to Columbus Ohio where Patricia went to East high school where she graduated from in 1967. Not much longer after her graduation she met a gentleman by the name of Fred Johnson they later married in 1970. In this marital bliss they had 3 beautiful daughters Pamela, Jaida and Nicole.

Patricia started her walk in the ministry in 1975. For two years, under the direction Bishop Charlie Davis of Main Street Baptist church and Shady Grove Baptist Church on Miami Ave where she received her training as a Deaconess. Being led by the spirit Deaconess Johnson moved her membership to Saint Mary’s temple under the direction and leadership of Elder Mary Beard where she became an ordained and license minister working in her calling under Elder Beard’s direction for many of years.

Again, being led by the spirit Evangelist Powell became a member of God’s House of Deliveries under leadership of Pastor, Elder David McDonald from 1990 to 1995. Evangelist Powell was call into pastoral ship. Pastor Powell was ordained by Pastor, overseer Mary Beard of Saint Mary’s temple. Pastor Powell founded and began her own ministry and church in 1995 namely Walk by Faith Temple Ministries.

As God continued to bless Pastor Powell, she was able to move her ministry and church to several locations to reach different communities. She was over Helping Hands Program which fed the homeless and the hungry without any prejudice. Pastor leaded an outreach program for Walk by Faith while working alongside with Power of Prayer Ministry under Apostle Colette Jones. Pastor Powell also had her heart and hands in Toys for Tots to make sure that every child would not go without a Christmas meal or waking up without something under the tree.

In the process she had found new love with her husband L. Bruce Powell they married in 1988 in California.

    The Power of Prayer Church Ministries extends our deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Patricia Powell. We honor the life and times of this precious, gentle woman of God. She is known throughout the community as a person of faith. She has ‘walked by faith’ her entire life. Our hope is in Christ Jesus, the Bible encourages unwavering faith. Dr. Powell’s life reflected the unwavering faith expressed in 2 Timothy 4:7-8 “I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the Faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a Crown of Righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day and not to me only, but unto all them also who love His appearing.” Farewell, my dear friend, until we meet again.

  5. To my family, May God be with all of you in this time of sadness. Just know that Aunt Trish is with God now. The creator off ALL things. I love all of you and will keep you all in my prayers.

    On January 14, 2021, God had an opening in Heaven that needed to be filled so He decided to call your name for you was next in line. God has gained another angel that was very dear to everyone. On behalf of the Jones family, we send our deepest condolences to my brother-in-law Mr. William Burton of Charleston, WV. May each of the family members find comfort in knowing that your loved one is suffering no more. Revelation 21:4 tells us, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” May God bless each of you during this time and stay encouraged. Aunt Trish will truly be missed here on earth but will forever be in our hearts.

  8. I have been trying to think of what I can say and am very much now mindful that I can not call you up for help. After almost 48 years it is a strange place for me. But in knowing you and thinking of you we both understood where our ultimate strength comes from. So now I am leaning on that strength and expressing to you and your entire family and friends that, I LOVE YOU, Always
