Joey Cook pastors City Church—an urban church in Conway that is truly welcoming of all people, sees imagination as the key to the future, chooses authenticity over performance, substance over hype, and quality over quantity. He holds various degrees including a Masters of Divinity from Liberty University Theological Seminary. Joey is fascinated with and committed to guiding others toward personal transformation in Jesus, fostering personal creativity, creating cultural change, social justice, and helping others to find joy in the mundane. 

Joey is in the process of learning that his value does not come from accomplishment, achievement, or accolade, but only in the finished work of Jesus.  For this reason, his absolute favorite activities include enjoying his morning conversation over a hot cup of coffee and watching movies with his wife Syndal. Activities earning honorable mention include going on mini-adventures w/his children Ryder and MJ and playing a game of pickup basketball with his staff at the local gym. Joey also dreams of one day competing in the Ironman World championships in Kona, Hawaii.
