Mrs. Cathy Berry is the wife of Dr. Gary Berry, Pastor of Liberty Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. They have served together full time in the ministry since 1973.
Mrs. Berry grew up in a Christian home. Her father was the pastor of Rock of Ages Baptist Church in Charlotte for 27 years. She made a childhood profession of faith at age nine and was baptized. However after struggling with the difference between morality and salvation, she truly accepted Christ as her Savior during a Thanksgiving revival on November 21, 1970 at Faith Baptist Church. She was baptized later in Lake Norman after an "Old Fashioned Singing" and "Dinner on the Grounds" that followed the baptismal service.
She met Dr. Berry at Faith Baptist Church on Sunday night July 7, 1968. This was the night that he accepted Christ. They dated for four years while Dr. Berry completed his military tour and she completed cosmetology training. They were married on October 21, 1972.
In the autumn of 1973, after the birth of their first child, the Berry family moved to a small town in the mountains of North Carolina where Dr. Berry served as a Bus Director, Sunday School, Superintendent and Christian School Principal. Mrs. Berry also taught in the elementary school as well as Sunday School and other church duties. After four years of service at the Bible Way Baptist Church, the Lord moved the growing family back to Charlotte to start another ministry.
The Berry's have three adults sons. Tim and his wife Angie were married December 17, 2007. Ben and his wife Millie have a four year old daughter, Holliston, who was born August 25, 2004. The newest granddaughter Hennesey Eden was born March 10, 2009. The youngest son Matthew is single and works for Liberty Baptist Church.
Mrs. Berry teaches the Lighthouse Ladies SS Class. She is known as a counselor and encourager. She sings alto in the church choir, and also with the Ladies Ensemble. She founded Liberty Baptist's chapter of The Phoster Club in November of 1991.
Her favorite things are helping people, pink roses, cookies, and of course, chocolate! Her favorite book besides the King James Bible is Meet the Holy Spirit by Dr. Jack Hyles. If you were to ask Mrs. Berry how she would like to be remembered, her reply would be, "I would like for people to say that, 'Mrs. Berry loved me.'"
