Vernell Cooper, along with his wife Alonda Cooper are the founders and Senior Pastors of His Will Worship Center (HWWC). HWWC is a non-denominational, racially diverse Christian church, located in Slidell, LA.
Pastor Cooper is affectionately known as Pastor 'V" and he is a man of INTEGRITY & FAITH. He believes that God is able to do just what He said He would Do! He is an example to both the young & old and is a man of many testimonies. In fact, Pastor V's Conversion is a miracle and testimony in and of itself. One Sunday morning he walked into New Home Ministries after a night of getting wasted and accepted Jesus as Lord & Savior and he has not stopped serving in the kingdom since. In 2002 he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. By 2004 he confessed his calling to his Pastor and in 2007 was ordained by man and in the same year both he and his wife were promoted to Marriage Ministry Facilitators. As a team they've successfully taught couples how to minister to each other and seek God for the course of a fruitful relationship.
Pastor Cooper is a man in Authority, but remains a submitted son who remains under authority because he values proper connection. Both he and his wife were taught to Sit, Walk, and Stand by their Spiritual Father Pastor Samuel R. Blakes of New Home Ministries at New Orleans, LA. Thus you have a healthy birthing of His Will Worship Center.
Pastor Cooper often finds it difficult to talk about his-self or hear others speak about him because of the fact that his ministry of service is not about him. The work that he has been called to do is totally focused on God, our Heavenly Father, Provider, and Sustainer, Jesus Christ, our Savior, Redeemer and Intercessor, and Holy Spirit our Guide, Teacher and Comforter. While acknowledging that God has graced him with the awesome task of Pastoring. He notes his greatest grace was when he was fortunate to find a devoted wife. He is the loving husband of Prophetess Alonda and together they have two beautiful daughters. 'Lexi' Dianne & 'Netta' Chanel both of whom are being nurtured into Women of Prayer, Poise, and Power!
If asked for his mission & purpose He will simply say I am a servant. Although, he fully understands that he has been called to make ready a people prepared for the Lord he diligently seeks the Father through fasting and prayer so that God will smile on him at the rendering of his lifestyle of worship.
Pastor V's teachings are relevant for today's generation and are Right Where You Can Reach It! They exude God's love through the Revelation of the Cross and they don't bring condemnation but bring forth Holy Conviction, Consecration, Direction, & Inspiration!
Fun Facts: Loves Bowling, New Orleans Saints, Lakers & Hornets, Working Out, and Spending time with his family.
