Meet Our Pastor & Lisa


Peace Be Unto You:

 Welcome to New Life Sanctuary (NLS), I am Pastor Coop, I am the Lead Pastor (Founding Pastor) of NLS.  My wife, Lisa and I have two wonderful adult, children, Taylor and Cody.


From 1985-1989, I served in the United States Marine Corps. When I was Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps, I 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. In November of 2007, I obtained the Distinguished Rank of Ordained Bishop with the Church of God.

September 2008, Lisa, Taylor, Cody, and I began a new journey, we planted New Life Sanctuary (NLS). Our first service was held in our home in the Redlands and we had in attendance seventeen people. Today we are a Life-Giving, growing church in the community.  Come and join on Sunday!
