Bishop Ervin Sims, Jr., was saved at age 16, called to preach at age 18, and has been pastor of Mount Carmel Church of God in Christ since 1980. Under his leadership, church membership has grown to be one of the most significant congregations in the greater Kansas City area.
In 1994, Pastor Sims accused his church membership of being a drive by church. Saying they were driving by the slum and blight in the inner city to come for service and then driving back out again to their air-conditioned homes. He advocated for the neighborhood exclaiming, "We've got to do something about it. From that powerful message, the membership commissioned him to form Mt. Carmel Redevelopment Corporation (MCRC), and become the catalyst for change in the inner city of Kansas City, Kansas. Pastor Sims, former Executive Director of MCRC, led the organization in a multi-million dollar expansion program. Mt. Carmel's master plan outlined construction of 48 single family homes for low to moderate income families (16 have been completed); and a $6.2 million senior citizen apartment complex (61 units) which was completed in 2001. In partnership with the Boys & Girls Club, MCRC built the $8.6 million Breidenthal Community Center, completed in the fall of 2006.
Bishop Sims' ministry reaches beyond the United States. His church took mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Bristol, England, Ghana and Togo, West Africa, and Cape Town, South Africa. February 2007, Pastor Sims was appointed Director of Missions to the countries of Ghana and Togo, West Africa by Bishop Carlis L. Moody, Sr., International President of Missions and the General Board of the Church of God in Christ, Memphis, TN. It is estimated that 100+ churches make up the jurisdiction of churches in these two countries. His responsibilities include coordinating the operation of the jurisdiction, overseeing existing departments, and establishing new departments when necessary. He has taken one to two trips a year as Director of Missions to Ghana and Togo. A new international Mt. Carmel Church of God in Christ was birthed in Accra, of Ghana in 2002 as a result of his ministry.
Bishop Sims holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Kansas University, Lawrence, Kansas. He has been married forty-four years to Mary Kathryn Sims, his lifetime sweetheart, who serves faithfully with him in ministry. He is the devoted father of three children - Lisa Smith, Ervin Jason Sims, and Angela Jenelle. Bishop and Mrs. Sims are proud grandparents of: Taylor, Jaylen, Ethan, and Jayla Sims, and Kasey, Keith and Kristian Smith.
While in Kansas East Jurisdiction, Bishop Ervin Sims, Jr. served as Superintendent of Kansas City District from 2003 until February 2012. He was appointed Administrative Assistant for Congregational Development in Kansas East, in 2008. Bishop Sims is an exceptional preacher, teacher, and facilitator. He is regularly sought out to teach workshops at local and national conventions. He has achieved several secular accomplishments and awards for engineering management, community development, and personal achievement.
In April 2011, the General Board of the National Church of God in Christ recognized his years of faithful of service and dedication providing leadership to the countries of Ghana and Togo, West Africa, and elevated him to the office of the Bishopric. He was consecrated during the 2011 International Holy Convocation held in St. Louis, Missouri to the office of the Jurisdictional Bishop for Ghana, West Africa. Bishop Sims looks forward to developing a model for International Ministry. The Mt Carmel Church of God In Christ, Inc. was transferred to the Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Republic of Ghana on August 1, 2012. "TO GOD BE THE GLORY!"
Mary has served in ministry with her husband, Bishop Ervin Sims, Jr., at the Mount Carmel Church of God in Christ for the last 33 years.
