A true example of a husband and wife team. James Cooper is our lead pastor. He has dedicated his life to the service of others and sharing God's word. His messages are not scheduled, but guided by the holy spirit. While most of the sermons he gives are uplifting and sprinkled with a bit of humor, he is also not afraid to take on the difficult subjects. We are real people in a real church and his messages are real, raw, and honest. He gives you the guidance you need to find your way on your own spiritual journey. Every year James holds conference for men where he gives lessons on what it means to be a son, a provider, and a husband... and man- in today's world. His wife, Shelly is his backbone and source of strength. She also holds an annual conference for the women so they can learn things such as, How to be a Mary in a Martha World. Shelly is not only his wife but also the event coordinator, hostess, chef, and much, much more! One of the rare things about this couple and their family is that their door is always open, which is sadly rare to find these days. They believe that you get what you give and that it comes back to you 30, 60, or sometimes 100 times more! Not only do they believe it and speak it, but they live it! They are always there to lend an ear or a hand to those in need or struggling with something in their lives. The love they have, not only for each other, but members of the church family as well, and their spirit of love and kindness radiates throughout this church. They are a true inspiration of what God can bring together and a blessing to all who know them.
