Dr. Joseph Fowler and Family

Dr. Joseph Fowler

Your Pastor Search Committee has been meeting on Monday evenings since December 1, 2021.  We are quite a varied group which has made for an exciting experience and showed us just how wonderfully God works to put all the necessary pieces, in this case people, together to bring about His ultimate plan for our Church.  We have shared together, prayed together, fasted, reviewed resumes, sent out and reviewed questionnaires, listened to sermons, talked with references, and Zoomed with candidates.  During this process, one person continually “rose to the top of the stack.” After much discussion and prayerful consideration, each member of our Committee believes and unanimously agrees on that candidate.  We have diligently reviewed his qualifications, interviewed multiple references from varying walks of life, verified his credentials, conducted a thorough background check, and spent several hours with him and his wife in personal meetings and conversations.  We believe that the Committee has done due diligence throughout the search process and can without reservation and with great excitement recommend to you that Dr. Joseph Fowler be called as the next Senior Pastor of Cook Baptist Church!
