Dennis Cook At Creekside 2017

Dennis Cook was born and raised in the Athens Ga. area. He grew up as a child in a little small town named Crawford Ga. until the age of eleven. During these years he attended a little country Church with his Mama and Granddaddy who was the song leader. He loved God, Family, and going to Church more than anybody Cook ever knew. Little did he know as he sat and watched him sing that God was preparing Cook for the singing ministry many years down the road. Cook's grandaddy was a Hero and the Christ like role model.

During the year of Cook's eleventh birthday, his family moved to the big city of Athens and did not attend Church for about a decade. During this time Cook began to wander far from God and no longer had his Granddaddy to give direction. God was the farthest thing from my mind but his mind was set on worldly pleasures.
But one very dark night during the spring of 1974 things were changed. Living in an Apartment on the 2nd floor, Cook had a dream that he walked out onto the patio and looked toward the eastern sky. All of a sudden the darkness opened up like a scroll and there was the face of Jesus. He was smiling down at Cook and the light that flowed from the King blinded him and Cook fell to his knees and said “Oh my God! It’s the end of the world and I’m not ready”.
Well needless to say, things were never the same after that night. Cook was invited to the Church known as White Hall Baptist where he presently attends. In November 1974, at the age of 22 years old, Cook repented of his sins and called upon the name of the Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior.
A few weeks later a few church members created a gospel group called the Joyful Hearts. In 1980,  Cook married Susan Hembree. In 1987, she gave birth to Katie who Cook calls the apple of his eye.
Since 2013, Cook has been singing as a soloist and in January 2014, Cook released his first CD entitled “I’m Bound for That City."
Later that year, Cook released his first single “Crying in the Chapel" to national radio. The tune hit number 12 on the SGN Scoops Top 100 Chart for November 2014 and has been in the top 40 for Three months.

Dennis released "One Pair of Hands" in 2015 to national radio and it climbed the charts to number 11 on the SGN Scoops Top 100 chart and remained in the top 40 for 6 month's.

You can see Dennis on television. He is a frequent guest on the Don Frost show on Channel 57 out of Atlanta!

2015 was a good year for Dennis Cook Ministries. In the spring Dennis won FGMN's Male Artist of the year. Later in the year Cook was voted Lighthouse Gospel Music Soloist of the Year. The next year in 2016, Cook won Lighthouse Gospel Music Soloist and Male Vocalist of the year.
Cook's unique style includes about 80% of songs that are the old Elvis Gospel songs or songs with that Elvis flavor. Many have claimed that Cook is a "spittin-image" of the Elvis gospel style. But Dennis does not like to be considered an Elvis impersonator. Cook says he just grew up in that era and loves those old songs and how Elvis did them.

Dennis Cook truly loves the Lord with all his Heart and wants to serve Him in every way. Cook loves people and putting a smile on their face. But most of all, his main goal is to see a soul saved.
