Preacher & Elder

 
Gary Cook
 
Along with Dan Zachary and Robert Voldase I have been an Elder here at the Garrestson Road church of Christ since February 2014. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity and consider it to be one of the greatest honors to do so. I am also the preacher here at the church.
 
I have been preaching the Gospel for the past 25 years. 11 of those years were as a missionary to the People’s Republic of China. I was the preacher in RoseBud, Arkansas for 2 years while I was attending Harding University where I graduated with a degree in Biblical Studies. We then moved to Seaford, Delaware where I had the privilege to preach for 7 years. The 4 ½ years after that I was the minister at the Valley Road church of Christ in Warrington, PA. It was from there that we went to China and from China to here.
 
I have been happily married to my wife Signa since 1978. I am blessed to have such a wonderful partner in my walk with God. We have three lovely, God serving, daughters; Summer Boggess, Kirah Hall and Hannah Cook along with two excellent son-in-laws; Joel Boggess and Travis Hall.

Elders

"Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap." - 1 Timothy 3:1-7

Deacons

"In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons."
- 1 Timothy 3:8-10
