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. 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 years on Cape Cod as the Worship Pastor at Osterville Baptist Church before moving to Hawesville. He is currently pursuing 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 train and send aspiring worship leaders. Dave and another local pastor, Andrew Hunt, are hosts of the Podcast How To Read Your Bible and Dave is working on his first book, The Foundation and Pillars of Leadership.
