Pastor Vannoy Cole Jr. and First Lady April Cole

Co-Founders Apostle V.S. Cole Sr. and Evangelist Ruby Cole


      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!
