Kimberly McGrady is a native of Corning, New York, growing up in the neighborhood in which Faith To Face Ministries is currently located. She is the youngest of three daughters born to the late Genesis and Lou Nell McGrady. A 1982 graduate of what was formerly known as Corning West High School, Kimberly holds an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science (Secretarial Science) from SUNY Alfred which she received in 1984.
Upon graduating from Alfred State College, Min. McGrady moved to the nation’s capital and spent several years as a Legal Administrative Assistant/Paralegal and since then has held a myriad of positions ranging from Administrative Assistant to Product Coding Administrator to Business Manager to Training Alliance Coordinator.
Though raised in the church, it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Kimberly came into an intimate relationship with the Lord. Under the leadership of Bishop Mark & Pastor Jeanette Vaughn the Lord has enabled her to realize who she is in God. A partner at Faith To Face Ministries since August 2000, Kimberly is currently the Director of the Vocal & Instrumental Music Ministry. She also serves diligently as one of the ministry’s Intercessors and is a member of the Events, Christian Education & Youth Ministry teams.
A minstrel and psalmist, Pastor McGrady helped to produce the ministry’s inaugural CD project, The Kingdom is Dangerous, on which she wrote the title track. She was licensed as a Minister of the Gospel in November of 2007 and notes Prophecy as one of the gifts that the Holy Spirit manifests in her ministry.
In June 2010, the Lord blessed Kimberly to earn a Bachelors degree in Childhood Education with honors (Cum Laude). She is planning to pursue her Master’s Degree in Special Education and to ultimately obtain a PhD in Education.
On July 29, 2018 Kimberly was ordained to the office of the Pastor-Teacher in the Lord’s church.
Kimberly is the proud mother of two sons, Xavier Thomas and Adrian Robert, and is also proud to be “Gigi” to her first granddaughter, Lillyan Faith (affectionately known as, “ Pood”).
Kimberly truly has a love and passion for reading, study and ministry of the Word of God. While the whole bible is her “favorite scripture”, the one scripture that punctuates this season of her life is, “That I may know him AND the power of his resurrection AND the fellowship of his suffering, being made conformable unto his death” Philippians 3:10 (emphasis added)
