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 has some 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 has been fascinated with bicycles since childhood and even has one hanging in their families home in midtown Conway. He loves watching movies with his wife Syndal and going on mini-adventures w/his children Ryder and MJ. Joey also dreams of one day competing in the Ironman World championships in Kona, Hawaii. 

When my family moved to Conway to plant City Church, we were seeking to create the kind of Biblical community that we had always read about in scripture. What we got was so much more. The greatest part is that none of us could even attempt to take the credit for what God is doing among us. It is beautiful to see people cast off idols and sell out to the mission of Jesus.
