//Todd, Dawn, Bailey & Asher Cole
Todd was raised in a Christian family and trusted in Christ at the age of 7. His father served in the military which caused their family to move every 2-3 years. They eventually settled in Fort Walton Beach, FL where Todd was called to the ministry at the age of 17 and graduated high school. He earned BA and BS degrees from William Carey University and a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Todd has served churches as a Student Pastor in Mississippi, Georgia, and for the last 7 years in Cary, NC while living in Holly Springs. Dawn also grew up in a military family and trusted in Christ at the age of 17. She also attended William Carey University and has worked as an accounting and contract administrator for architectural and landscape companies. Dawn and Todd began dating in high school and married in 1998. Their daughter Bailey is 7 years old and their son Asher was born in March of 2015.
In 2010 Todd began to feel that God was shifting His ministry vision and calling. Over the next several months God began to give he and Dawn a burden for people in the community of Holly Springs right where they lived. It became apparent that God was calling Todd and Dawn to start a church that would have a simple and clear focus on connecting people to an overflowing relationship with Jesus Christ. As this calling grew and became more clear, Todd and Dawn began seeking out training opportunities in order to plant a healthy and multiplying church. God soon led them to a one year Church Planting Residency at Brentwood Baptist Church in Nashville, TN. They are excited about developing relationships and seeking opportunities to demonstrate and declare the love of Christ in Holly Springs.
