Rev. Ken Cook

It’s slightly after midnight as I put up this post. Like most preachers, I need to wind down after preaching. I didn’t preach tonight but I sure felt like I did. What an awesome week this has been.
We have been in revival with Ken and Julie Cook this week. These are not just any evangelists to me but it is my sister and brother-in-law. They have worked harder than any evangelists I have ever seen; spending north of 10 hours a day on the streets witness to people and inviting them to church.
Today was the culmination of it all with a Community Outreach Service (you can catch the video here). We had over 400 in church today and this week have baptized 25 folks (see many of them here). We are starting several new avenues of outreach (including one for yours truly which I’ll discuss later) and have begun the process of retaining those who have been touched by this week of evangelism.
I’m tired but it’s a good tired. To my pastor friends who read this blog, if you are looking to have an outreach revival, please consider Ken and Julie. Not just because they are my family but because this is their burden and candidly, they are good at it. More updates this week.
