7605 - Richard Cook - Growing in Christ

An Interview with Richard Cook, a member of Bear Creek United Methodist Church and the work that he is doing with the United Methodist Men ministering to injured veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

He shares about his Christian upbringing, but he acknowledges that he was not deeply connected to Christ until he was an adult. A visit to Bible study got his attention as he was confronted by a group of passionate Godly men. Since that point his commitment to growing has been more consistent.

He shares that, “Sometimes God puts things in front of you that you may not be comfortable with.”

To learn more about the work that Richard Cook does with Impact Player Partners, their annual golf tournament fundraiser, and to hear more about working with injured soldiers, visit our page about Ministering to Veterans in our Interview section.
