“We can gather our thoughts, but the Lord gives the right answer” (Proverbs 16:1).
Born to "father" nations, Apostle Dennis Cook is no stranger to the sacrifices associated with "selling out" to ministry. A native of Eldorado, Arkansas, he watched his father, Elder Lewis Cook, pastor seven churches simultaneously. Apostle Dennis Cook answered the eternal call upon his life while serving in the Armed Services at Fort Hood in Killeen, TX. From that his ministerial matriculation began. Licensed in Hawaii, he was then ordained as an "Elder" in the Church of God in Christ in the 3rd Jurisdiction of Arkansas in January 1995. Apostle Dennis Cook founded New Life Ministries in 1995 which was located in the very small town of Lewisville Arkansas. Starting with no congregation the ministry grew 500 + "kingdom citizens" in the span of two years.
In accordance with the will of God and in fulfillment of his desire to operate in ministry beyond religion and religious boundaries he was affirmed as an Apostle by Dr. Lawrence Braggs of Trumpet in Zion of Little Rock, AR currently known as Awareness Center International.
After his time with the Assemblies of God, Apostle Cook accepted the divine assignment to pastor Mt Zion Baptist Church in Texarkana, Arkansas now known as Mt. Zion Baptist Transformation Center, "One Church in Three Locations" in three cities and two states. Mt. Zion headquarters location also houses the largest conference facility in the area known as Royal Palace Event Center.
Apostle Dennis Cook is an exemplary father and grandfather, both naturally and spiritually. And, because he understands his own purpose he is and shall be the catalyst for many sons and daughters reaching full potential in the Kingdom.
"My sheep hear my voice" (John 10:16).

"Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God."(Romans 10:17)
Recently, Apostle Cook has gained popularity by hosting two highly acclaimed Sunday evening events: The Spirit Awareness radio broadcast and "Kingdom Swagger" Services. This urban term "swagger" is the summation of one's walk, talk, demeanor and style. Both the broadcast and service are designed to reach beyond the walls of traditionalism and religion to embrace with love and not condemnation anyone regardless of their walk. The stance of Apostle Cook is to love people where they are until they get to where they are going. Apostle Cook aims to propel people to destiny that they can have a kingdom walk, talk and demeanor. By actively operating in Matthew 6:33 and recognizing the priorities set in place before the foundation of time, first the Kingdom and His Righteousness. Apostle Cook is teaching a generation how to place a demand on the Kingdom which resides inside of each Kingdom Citizen thereby having full and unhindered access to the addition of "all these things."
