Pastor Vannoy Cole Jr. and First Lady April Cole
Founder - Apostle Vannoy S. Cole Sr.
(1947 - 2013)
Cathedral of Compassion Deliverance Church was founded in 1985 by the late Apostle
Vannoy Cole Sr. The vision God gave him for the ministry was to lead souls to salvation and
prepare them for Heaven. Apostle Cole was a man of great faith and impeccable strength.
He believed in the salvation of his family and always made it a point to take his children to
church. Preaching the Gospel, obeying God's Word, fasting and praying were all his
passions. In the community, along with his wife Evangelist Ruby Cole, Apostle Cole
touched many lives as they led souls to salvation and led people
to be filled with the Holy Ghost. God also blessed them to begin a
street and radio ministry in which many miracles were worked.
Several churches were licensed under Apostle Cole's ministry
He pastored in various cities in Texas where he actively gave and
gave with all his heart. Apostle Cole was very instrumental in
church by serving in whatever area there was a need, such as:
driving the church van, cleaning the building, and visiting the sick
and shut-in. He played many different instruments, including the
drums, guitars, the saxophone and was a gifted songwriter. He was
a man of great joy who passionately praised the Lord and did so with all his heart, spirit,
mind, body and soul. With his last breath he left this earth praising the Lord. Apostle Cole
left a great legacy at Cathedral of Compassion Deliverance Church one that has been going
strong ever since. To God be the Glory!
