He is an alumni of Durant High School class of 2013 and native to calling First Baptist Church Durant his home church. Throughout his high school, college, and young adult life, he has spent time in IT infrastructure, networking, web/app development, TV broadcasting, cinematography, photography, editing, creative directing, advertising, student leadership and more. He desires to make meaningful content and use his skills to leverage every aspect of his life for the sake of the Gospel.
Cole grew up in a home with parents and a church that taught him the truths of the Scriptures. During that time, he surrendered his life to the Lord. It was in high school where he found a group of believers who walked with him in discipleship and showed him what it looked like to obediently magnify the light of Jesus in a world that desperately needs Christ. While attending SOSU, it was through the Baptist Collegiate Ministry where he met his wife Sarah and they were married in April of 2017. Cole and Sarah each have a heart for serving in the community that God has placed them in. During his free time, Cole enjoys spending time with friends and family, watching movies, playing/watching sports, and riding his Onewheel.
