Pastor Anthony Cox
John 3:16 say that God so loved the world that he gave his only son.. God not only gave, but gave his very best to bring mankind back to himself. He reached out first; He loved first, so why shouldn’t I? Relationships is an vital part of our culture at RLC.
We are all leaders in some fashion because someone is following us. Therefore, we must understand leadership from Gods perspective. A great leader is a great servant and when this is modelled and acted out we can impact our children, household, and workplace.
The family that is founded on influences based on God's Word is the bedrock that holds this sacred unit together. We must make time to cultivate those relationships and show acts of kindness that is not self seeking. Imagine a family where their DNA was how can I serve others. This would virtually remove over 90% of the situations that can cause division.
Anthony Cox comes from a family that served in the ministry. His father was a Pastor and this is where Anthony journey began. God placed within him special gifts of creativty and compassion for people. This initially lead down the road of academia where he pursued a career in engineering. He served at IBM obtaining experience and practical skills in leadership and management. He faithfully gave his talents and abilities to the church where he served for many years. His compassion for God's people and passion for Salvation of the lost facilitated the call on his life to go into the ministry. His soul mate, best friend and wife of 30 years was with him every step of the way. Together they embarked on a new journey that utimately changed their lives for the Glory of God.
