|Title:||Deacon of Building & Maintenance|
Kevin is a native of Plymouth, NC and brought up in a God-fearing home by his parents John and Sue Cooper. He and his two siblings (Michael and Amy) were dedicated to the Lord at birth and brought up in the Plymouth Church of God. Kevin was an active member of the church singing in the choir, singing specials and playing musical instruments in the church band (drums and trumpet). God has blessed him vocally and during his senior year in high school and freshman year in college, was granted the opportunity to sing lead/tenor with a local gospel group. Kevin continues to use his talents for the Lord at the Matthews Church of God, where he has attended since March 2006.
After graduation from Plymouth High School, Kevin moved to Wilmington, NC where he attended the University of North Carolina and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology. It was in his last semester of college, that he met his lovely wife Christina. They were married in 1999, and in the same year, relocated to the Charlotte area. God has since blessed him with a beautiful family, including his daughter Kassidy (2005) and son Carsten (2007).
Kevin is an active member of the Matthews Church of God, serving not only as a Deacon, but also in the Choir, Praise team and every now again breaks out the trumpet or sits down at the drums. He recognizes that if it wasn’t for a praying family and the grace of God, he wouldn’t be where he is today. He knows that God has ordained his steps and has drawn him to the Matthews Church of God for such a time as this. Kevin is excited about how God is using him and his prayer is to be continually used for his service.
