Rev. Dave Cook
Dave Cook serves as Pastor of Worship and Discipleship (since October 2015). He and his wife Emily live in Hawesville with their four children: Sarah, Josiah, Lydia, and Anna.
Dave was born and raised in the lakes and cypress swamps of Clermont, Florida, until he earned a B.A. in Graphic Design at Flagler College in St. Augustine and then an M.A. in Worship at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. Dave served for five ears on Cape Cod as the Worship Pastor at Osterville Baptist Church, a shining beacon of Gospel grace in the midst of secular and post-Catholic New England, before moving to Hawesville. He is also quietly working on a D. Ed. Min. in Leadership at Southern.
While Dave loves music, his great passion is to raise up Christian leaders who tremble at the word of God and walk in His ways. That's why he started our intern program, which helps us invest in aspiring worship leaders and has already sent one out into full-time ministry.
