Here at MMR, we have a handful of staff couples who have faithfully served for many years, building their lives and raising their families here. One such couple is Dan and Connie Cooper, who have served on staff since 1982. Over the years, they have both worked in many different capacities in the ministry, but Dan’s current role is the Director of the School of Discipleship and Connie’s is that of the Food Service Director. Both play a vital part in the inner-workings of daily life at the Ranch, as well as have a direct influence on the lives of the younger staff and students here. Dan, who holds a Master’s Degree in Biblical Counseling, has taught various classes over the years, which now include Introduction to Biblical Counseling, Marriage & Family Life, and Personal Stewardship. He also spends many hours counseling others from the truth of God’s Word. With her degree in English, Connie teaches the college-level English course, as well as the Food Service Major classes. Dan and Connie have three children: Garrett and his wife Hannah (formerly Cox) live in Texas, Joe serves in the United States Army as an Army Medic in an Airborne Unit, and Alana is still at home, finishing high school.
We have been blessed by their faithful service to God’s work here at the Ranch. Many of our staff are in need of monthly support, Dan and Connie included. If you would like to contribute to their support, you can give through our website on the staff page, or through the mail (with a memo to designate your gift).
