Clark Brooking, Pastor
Cheryl Brooking, Director of Children’s Ministries
Clark is a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia where he earned his Masters of Divinity. He came to us after spending several years in doctoral studies in the history of biblical interpretation at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. While he was working on his dissertation, the Lord placed upon his heart a burden for ministry and discipleship of God’s people. He joined the staff of Living Hope in 2007, providing leadership to family and life-stage ministries. When the organizing pastor, Peter Lee, left to serve as a professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in the District of Columbia at the end of 2010, Clark was called to his post. He is married to Cheryl and they have three children, Russell, Carson, and Lincoln.
Cheryl has a Masters of Arts in Teaching, and has many years of experience working with children in various environments, from the public school classroom to private and home school. She served as a teacher and as an administrator in Classical and Christian educational institutions prior to joining our staff. She brings warmth, leadership experience and biblical and theological acumen to our children’s ministries.
