Rev. Cathy Fielding

February 10, 1959 ~ June 3, 2022 (age 63)


Reverend Cathy “Cookie” Fielding was born February 10, 1959, in Brooklyn, NY to the late Johnnie Anderson, Jr., and Allean Foggie. During her childhood, Reverend Fielding moved to Spartanburg County (Woodruff, S.C.) with her mother and older sister, Carrie Vanessa Anderson where she attended Southside Elementary School, Evan Jr. High School, New Bethel High School, and Spartanburg High School. Early childhood spiritual training included attending the family church, Landford Holiness Church, with her grandparents, where her great grandmother was pastor. Cathy was baptized at age 12 by her then Pastor Leon Rector, subsequently becoming a member of Harrison Grove Baptist Church.

Cathy Fielding met her husband, the late James Fielding in June of 1975. Out of that union were born five children--four daughters (Recita, Thea, Jammie, and Elleana) and one son (James Jr.). She presently has twelve grandchildren.

Reverend Cathy Fielding received the revelation of Jesus Christ in June 1983 and later joined Mason Memorial Church of God in Christ (COGIC), under the leadership of Elder David Williams. There she served as a Sunday school teacher and sang in the choir. In 1984, God called Cathy to preach. After praying for a church home, the Lord led her to Mount Olive Baptist Church, where she exercised her gifts as a Vacation Bible School teacher, choir member, and minister to low-income women and children. Reverend Fielding was licensed to preach March 5, 1989, under the leadership of her pastor, Dr. Jerome C. Ross.

Cathy’s preparation for her call to ministry include Evans Smith Institute, graduated May 20, 1989, with a Religious Studies Certificate; Saint Leo University, graduated in June 1991 with an Associates of Arts Degree, and in June 2008 graduated with a Bachelor of Psychology and Religion; Virginia Union University, Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology, graduated in May 2015 with a Master of Divinity.

Olive Baptist Church, Asbury United Methodist Church, Sharon Baptist Church, and Gethsemane Baptist Church.

pastoral counseling, Christian radio management and broadcasting, public speaking and teaching the Word. Most recently, Reverend Fielding pastored Drummondtown and Metropolitan United Methodist Churches, located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
