Rev. Cook pastors Praise Temple Apostolic Church in Madisonville Kentucky. For over fifteen years now, the church has experienced tremendous growth, both spiritually and numerically. 

His passion for souls has been demonstrated time and again through the years from evangelism, to discipleship to leadership training. His passion for souls is also reflected in his investment in ministry, preachers, and ministry teams. 

From the onset of POH, Pastor Cook has been an encourager, promoter, counselor, and a voice of godly wisdom. It is his desire for POH to reach its full potential in winning souls for the Kingdom of God.

Pastor Linn and Sister Miranda Barnett are from Madisonville Ky. They have worshipped at Praise Temple Apostolic Church in Madisonville with their family for the last 10 years. Pastor Barnett has had the honor of working closely with Pastor Cook, serving as musician, bible study coordinator, Sunday School teacher, treasurer, and bus driver.  Most recently Pastor Barnett, a licensed UPCI minister, was privileged to serve as Administrative Assistant Pastor. 


In 2017, God renewed a call in Pastor Barnett’s life. It was a call he felt when he first began preaching in 1996. Over the last 2 years, through much prayer, fasting, and searching out God’s will, Pastor and Sister Barnett were led to Hopkinsville where they were approved by the United Pentecostal Church to begin a daughter work.


Pastor and Sister Barnett have 2 children at home; Luke, 7, and Danielle, 3. Their daughter Lauren and son in law, Young Kim, live in Tallahassee, FL where they attend college.
