Meet Our Team

The assignment of TCM is to “strengthen churches and leaders,” and we are ever mindful that we are not alone in our work. There are partners who support us regularly, friends who pray for us, and pastors who host us in their churches. There are also some key individuals who are very “hands-on” in the way they assist and contribute to the effectiveness of Tony Cooke Ministries. We’d like you to meet them.

Trustees

A ministry incorporated in the U.S.A. must have a trustee board that oversees the operation and activities of that organization. Tony Cooke Ministries is very pleased to have Pastor John Carter (Syracuse, NY) and Pastor Mark and Brenda Thomas (Hayward, CA) assisting in that capacity. Together with Tony and Lisa, the board meets annually to go over the progress and activities of the ministry, review the finances of the ministry, set goals, and provide valuable counsel. TCM also benefits from working closely with both an attorney (Dan Beirute) and an accounting firm (Elliot, Dozier, and Helland) who specialize in non-profit organizations.

I first came to know Tony Cooke as an eighteen year old freshman student at Rhema Bible Training College. He quickly became my favorite instructor. Later, as I entered ministry, Tony and Lisa became mentors and some of our dearest friends. Tony and Lisa’s wisdom and guidance have proven invaluable to our ministry over the years. Tony is a man of relentless passion for Christ and His Church. It has been my distinct honor to have served on the Board of Directors of Tony Cooke Ministries since its inception. I know of no other minister who maintains higher standards of honor, integrity, and excellence.

It has been my great pleasure and privilege to serve on Tony Cooke’s board for many years. Tony and Lisa are a great blessing to churches and pastors both in the US and around the world. Their insight and fresh perspective on ageless Biblical truths have been an enormous benefit to the body of Christ through the years and will continue to be for generations to come.

Cullen Swanson

Cullen Swanson
Graphic & Web Designer, Internet Marketing

Cullen began working with TCM in the beginning of 2007. He is responsible for updating and maintaining tonycooke.org, and helping Rev. and Mrs. Cooke carry out what God has called them to do through various types of digital media online. “I had worked at Kenneth Hagin Ministries as a project manager for 2 years, and quickly developed a love for graphic and web design. After leaving Rhema to open a full-service graphic and web design firm, I began acquiring a few clients here and there—mostly churches and small businesses that needed a new logo, brochure, video, or a website. Then, in November 2006, Rev. Cooke called me about redesigning a new website for TCM. Since that day, my business has never stopped growing, and I have never been in want for work. It didn’t take long for Rev. Cooke to become more than a client to me. Over the years, he has been a mentor, a brother, and a dear friend to me—it is truly an honor to be part of what God has called him to do.”
