Kathy Cooper

Kathy is excited to be serving along-side her husband Tony in the North Central Region. Connecting women together in the body of Christ is one of her passions. She believes building relationships is very important in becoming a healthy Christian woman. She greatly enjoyed her years as a pastor’s wife in relationship building among women and young ladies. Kathy is eager to serve and connect with the wonderful ladies of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana.

Kathy was privileged to serve the Church of God in Kentucky for years as Accounting Secretary and Women’s Ministries Secretary. She also served in Ohio on the State Women’s Board.

She thoroughly enjoys spending time with her two sons and daughter in law, and is very proud of them. Besides her favorite pastime of being with family, her hobbies include photography, sports (especially UK basketball), walking, and spending time with friends.
