Welcome to New Life Sanctuary (NLS), I am Pastor Coop, I am the Lead Pastor (Founding Pastor) of NLS. I have been involved in ministry for 18 years. My wife, Lisa and I are proud parents of two wonderful children, Taylor and Cody.
From 1985-1989, I served in the United States Marine Corps. In June 1989, I was a Sergeant in the Marine Corps and was granted a early Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps. I then, attended the University of Missouri, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, with a Certification of Teaching Secondary Education.
I felt the calling into the ministry in 1998, and became the Youth Pastor at West Kendall Church of God. I attended the Ministry Internship Program (MIP) through the Church of God School of Ministry in 2001 and after completing MIP, I was promoted to the Associate Pastor and served in that posotion for several years.
