Here’s an accomplishment we have done together, Reaching Out, Touching Lives, Doing Our Part, Making A Difference…….
A Word From Pastor Paul Olivarez....
Greetings, Family & Friends, I pray that when you read this you will be blessed in Jesus.
It is an honor to be a member of this awesome part of the body (family) of Christ at C.O.O.L. Ministries, Inc. This journey began in early 2009 at Joe Kegans State Jail, where I was an offender in the Faith based dorm “J dorm.”
Pastor Boyd would come in on Monday afternoons and preach and teach the “Breaking The Chains” Curriculum to all the men in the dorm, including myself of course. I was also exposed to many other Biblical teachings from other volunteers and ministers and I am very grateful for them as well, but I seemed to relate to Pastor Boyd more than the other volunteers because of past life styles. Upon my release I visited several other churches and found myself being led by the Holy Spirit to attend C.O.O.L. Ministries, where I attended the “Breaking The Chains” class for two more sessions at Headquarters. Now, for the past 5 years, I’m the facilitator in the same Faith based dorm, and preach and teach the “Breaking The Chains” Curriculum to others.
C.O.O.L. Church is where I met my beautiful wife Amanda and we will be married 5 years now on May the 27th this year. For what reason we didn’t know, but after about 3 years of being married, we didn’t think we would be able to have any children. But in Mark 9:23, Jesus said “all things are possible to him who believes” and on July the 29th 2014 our son Paul Lafette Olivarez was born. You can’t tell me GOD doesn’t answer prayers. I was also able to obtain my associates degree online with Dr.Siddiki at Wisdom Ministries this past year in 2015, and at the end of this year I was given the Grace to record my first CD with Pastor Eddie B. with “Conviction” for Christ Ministries out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, the title of the new CD will be “Moving On” it’s definitely rockin for Jesus, it will be available only at C.O.O.L. Ministries, Inc.
Pastors Boyd and Jan have passed the baton to my wife Amanda and me to lead the Wednesday Night Worship and Word Services. We would love for you to come and join us, as we worship the Lord and grow in His Holy Word. Remember Wednesday, is not just the middle of the week but the middle of your blessing come and get in the blessings that our Heavenly Father has for you.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus
Your Associate Pastor/Praise & Worship leader

Hello , my name is Mark Gund. I used to be homeless, strung out on drugs and a alcoholic for the most part of 25 years. It has already been over 5-years since I found the unfailing love and reconciliation of Christ Jesus up close and personal at COOL Church. No more drugs and alcohol, I'm clean, sober, and souled out for Christ! I did not have a friend who cared or else I would not have been stuck out in such a situation of homelessness for the rest of my life. Well thank God, I was led by the Spirit- to such a COOL place at COOL Church. Come on down and see the difference, God can make in your life with such a good pastor as Pastor Boyd !Mark Gund,
When I discovered C.O.O.L. Ministries in September of 2006 at an Eddie B service, I had no idea how spiritually immature I was. When I officially joined in August of 2007 our Lord and King was beginning my journey to true manhood.Charles,
C.O.O.L. Ministries' steadfast consistent preaching and living the Word of God has to be the number one reason I am planted there today! The love and acceptance and teaching brought to me by senior Pastors Boyd and Jan has solidified the foundation of my marriage and life. A rock solid marriage, a ministry of compassion, a believe and receive lifestyle, led to the adoption of Cassian. I may have given up had I fellow-shipped elsewhere!
I cannot put a dollar value on all the blessings we have received as a result of 100% plus tithing, and serving others. Oh yeah, I started prison ministry in September of 1986. I thought I knew what prison ministry was all about: UNTIL I joined C.O.O.L. and learned about 24-7 compassion ministry! the blessings we receive as a result of helping others cannot be measured!
To whom it may concern,Lori Baker,
I met pastor Boyd and Jan in in 2010 when I got to Plane State jail in Dayton Tx. I was lost and had no idea Jesus was my lifeline. They came in as C.O.O.L. Ministries. They brought the love of God in music to the faith dorm. I fell in love with Jesus through music the word and the volunteers.
The 12 Step ministry Pastor Boyd developed and brought in showed me how to stay sober. I began to let Jesus change my heart. Jan read my inventory so I could let go of the past and walk in healing with Jesus.
I am now 11 months outside and they have reached out in some wee hours of the night on the phone (I drive an 18 wheeler over 48 states.) Pastor held bible study with me while I walked through fears, insecurities and successes with Christ. Phil 4;19 I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.
Because of COOL I know who's I am. I'm not ashamed anymore. A lifestyle is what they taught me. I am free and serving Christ. COOL is the ground breaking christian making organization. They being people to Christ and visit the prisoners.
