Briefly tell us what you're currently feeling about your walk with God, focus in life, etc.:

Knowing the deep pain many face today, I have sought to try to stay focused in the midst of trying times in our community, within the body of Christ, in friends lives and the many people we seek to minister to.  Having a another summer full--trying to stay balanced and maintain my personal commitment to Christ has been a challenge.  I am prone to be a wandering sheep and tend to gravitate to the "busy-ness" of just life.  It has been a good summer and we have been blessed in having good people around us in ministry positions helping us work toward the goal of reaching out and making a difference in the lives of our Community, Church and in families.  I am currently praying for several that are lost, many who have strayed off the path, and for personal growth in my relationship with Him.

Briefly tell us what you're currently feeling about your walk with God, focus in life, etc.:

My walk with God can be described in one word: love.  It is unfathomable how much God loves us.  As a Christian, it is our job to love others.  After going to Africa, I have realized that my God is a God with no limits; He truly loves to the ends of the Earth.  My focus in life is to love others as God loves us whether it be in the United States or in a foreign country.

Cole surrendered to the ministry on November 11, 2013. He was ordained on December 27, 2015, and licensed to the ministry October 30, 2016.
