REV. DENNIS C. COOK, Editor
ChurchMusicToday.Net began as Dennis C. Cook followed a call from God. Dennis is the Pastor of Worship and Discipleship at First Baptist Church in Leitchfield, KY and feels led to share any knowledge received in conferences, education, and experience with those part-time and volunteer music leaders who don’t have the time or access to further their craft.
He has participated in the music ministry since the third grade. In 1997, he surrendered into the Gospel ministry. He has served part-time in the music ministry since 1997 and full-time since 2005.
“I am not an expert in this field…only following the call from Christ to serve. I hope this blog can assist and encourage those who are not in full-time positions to better equip their ministries and congregations.”
