Sister Cheryl Garris was born on Dec. 20 to Edward and Virginia Garris. She was raised in Bronx, New York and is the only girl of four siblings. Sister Cheryl graduated from Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and Art. She later attended Hunter College in Manhattan, New York, where she graduated with a BA Degree in Human Communications and Psychology. 

After graduation, Sister Cheryl was employed by the Cancer Center of Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital for six years. While growing up she attended Childs Memorial Church of God in Harlem, New York. Childs Memorial was the only church that would allow the family of the late great Malcolm X to have his funeral in their edifice. Sister Cheryl relocated to Raleigh and was employed by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Mental Health for nine years.  

Sister Cheryl is the proud and devoted mother of four boys. Although she has her hands full with administrative duties, she always finds time for her sons and keeps them active in the ministries of the church and community.


YMT is grateful for the herculean effort she gives as church administrator. Sis. Cheryl diligently keeps our ministry running smoothly and moving towards the vision of the pastor with a loving and pleasant personality. She always seeks opportunities to accommodate every request and often goes over and beyond her normal responsibilities to make this ministry more effective and efficient.
