ABOUT OUR CHURCH
office: (864) 964-0049
As an Anderson native, I have always loved this community. I was raised in the church, and gave my life to Christ at an early age during Vacation Bible School. My walk with Jesus grew deeper through the influence of Christian friends and leaders throughout high school and college. I received a Bachelor’s degree in business from Anderson University and then married Anna in 1996. I served for several years in various areas of ministry within my home church. As I worked and served in this community, God began to speak to me and place on my heart a calling into ministry…a calling to plant a church. I am passionate about the need to reach the lost, proclaim the love of Christ and provide a place of worship that will truly disciple believers in their walk. I have a Master’s degree from Anderson University’s Clamp Divinity School. My wife, Anna, and I have 2 children.
I grew up in a Christian home and became a follower of Jesus at an early age. Creds to my parents! I have to give credit to one other person. I will never forget the sweet love of my first Sunday School teacher, Mrs. Margaret. She taught me the Bible stories on felt boards! I LOVED felt boards. Mrs. Margaret loved Jesus. She loved the children who had less. She loved the children who had more. She loved ME! I knew it! I could see it. I could feel it. It was real.
Is this what the crowds felt when they followed Jesus? I always thought how wonderful it would be to share Jesus like her. Do others see Christ’s love in me?
I graduated from Anderson College in 1998 earning a BS in Elementary Education. I married my best friend, Will Cook in 2002 and worked in the Software Industry until October 2015 when I decided to become a full-time mother to our four daughters, Caroline, Charli, Lolly, and Fielding. This has given me the ability to dedicate more time to Children’s Ministry at The Point Church. I love my little babies from nursery to fifth grade! I pray that Christ would use me to teach these children how to love and serve selflessly just as Mrs. Margaret did.
Breathe on me, Breath of God
Fill me with life anew.
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.
—Edwin Hatch (1878)
Originally living in Florida, I moved to South Carolina around the age of 6. My parents were both God-fearing Christians throughout my whole life. However, I was skeptical. Though nothing short of a miracle, I was adopted into the family of God around the age of 15.
I have a beautiful fiance named Jenna. We met in our former church and will be married August 3rd of 2018. I am currently attending North Greenville University in my Junior year, majoring in Christian theology. I have a huge heart for youth and believe they are the foundation for the growth of the church. Unlike adults, youth are very impressionable and can become a powerful force for the Kingdom of God through setting a basic theological foundation and imparting the love of Christ in them. I am overjoyed to be part of The Point Church family and look forward to loving and leading the kids I am blessed with. I hope to see you soon!
