“Welcome to Bethel United Apostolic Church! We at Bethel believe our most important missions are to glorify God and love people. Not only is our preaching annointed, our music inspiring, and our worship spirit-filled; but it is our deepest desire that our church be a place where God heals wounded hearts and mends broken lives. With frequent fellowship opportunities for youth, couples, men, ladies and more, visitors quickly become part of the Bethel family. Come worship with us soon!”
Pastor Lee Cook
About the Pastor
Pastor Cook received a call to the ministry at age 15, and began a lifelong ministry of singing and preaching. In the early 90’s he performed with the Kevin Cook Trio, and toured with Kevin Wright and Living Proof from 1995-2000. He served as Assistant Pastor and Minister of Music at the United Pentecostal Church of Lepanto, AR for 15 years, and was ordained by Pastor Bill John Harris in 2009. Pastor Cook then came to Bethel United Apostolic Church in Olive Branch, MS in 2010, to serve as co-pastor with Bishop Dwight Cook. Upon Bishop Cook’s retirement in February 2013, Rev. Lee Cook was installed as pastor at Bethel.
Pastor Cook met the former Tonya Russell in 1993, and the two were wed in 1994. They have four children: Levi, Cherye’, Savannah, and Chloe.
