Beloved Foursquare minister and mentor Jerry Cook has been diagnosed with colon cancer. He recently underwent surgery to remove the tumor and doctors assured him they were able to remove it all. Jerry and his wife, Barb, with much counsel from doctors have decided to go with the most aggressive treatments to ensure that all cancer cells are eliminated. This will include chemotherapy and some radiation treatments.

Jerry has been a public person throughout his life and wants to let as many people know about his desire for prayer. He is in great spirits and knows he is in the Lord’s hands. Jerry is thankful for his family, friends and church body that are caring for him.

Expressions of prayerful support can be sent to:
