Children's Pastor

Mike Cook

I was born on April 15th, 1981 in Paragould, AR. I was born again at church camp in 1991 just outside of Fredericktown, MO and followed with Believer's Baptism that same summer.

I married my high school sweetheart, Tasha in 2001 and now have two wonderful children.  Gracie is 12 and Gabrial is 11.

I graduated from Marmaduke School District in 1999, and then graduated from Arkansas State University with a BSE in English in 2003.  I completed my Master’s in Special Education in 2007.

I have been teaching Special Education since 2004 and working in my current location at Marmaduke High School for the past 7 years.

I accepted the position of children’s pastor at Lafe Baptist Church in October of 2015.

My favorite bible verse is Matthew 5:14-15.

Matthew 5:14-15 (KJV)

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.


My hobbies include hunting, fishing, coaching, and watching sports.

My desire as Children’s Pastor at LBC is to guide young hearts towards a lasting and pure relationship with our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

If you have children and are looking for a church that teaches and is lead by God's word, it is here at LBC. I would appreciate the opportunity to work with your children and help in teaching them about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
