Minister Patricia was born on January 13, 1952 in Culpeper VA. She is the daughter of Lewis and Sarah White. She attended the Culpeper County School System and Northern Virginia Community College.

Minster Sheppard has been a member of the Rising Zion Baptist Church since the age of eleven. She is the past president of the Deaconess Ministry, Assistant Sunday School superintendent, a Sunday school teacher, past Director of the Youth Department, a Missionary, and a Choir Member. When she repented and came out of darkness the Lord directed her to Matthew 6:33: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." All the scripture is given by the inspiration of God, but this is one verse that she loves: "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness, Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me." She loves the Word of God and whenever and wherever the Word is preached she tries to attend. Minister Patricia Sheppard says that her faith is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. Patricia is a mother, grandmother, and a great-grandmother.
