For over 30 years, Laurie Cole has encouraged women with her ability to speak God’s Word in truth and love with a little humor on the side. Her balanced blend of Scriptural teaching, practical application, and personal storytelling reaches women of all ages and stages of life. Laurie has spoken at hundreds of events through the years, and the most repeated comment women tell her is, “I could listen to you talk all night.”
Laurie’s passion for God’s Word was ignited many years ago when she enrolled in an in-depth (Precept) Bible study that changed her life. Encouraged by the older women who led the study, Laurie received training and began teaching a group, and the Lord has been opening doors for her to teach and speak ever since.
As the Founder and President of Priority Ministries, Laurie Cole is dedicated to encouraging women to give God priority. She speaks at women’s events and conferences in all evangelical, Bible-believing settings across the country. She also is the author of six Bible studies that have been widely used by churches and groups in all fifty states and abroad.
Laurie and her husband Bill have been married for 40 years. They serve the Lord together at Sagemont Church (Baptist) in Houston, Texas where he is on staff. They have three great sons, two daughters-in-love, and five fun grandchildren.
A word from Laurie’s Pastor
“It has been my privilege to be Laurie Cole’s pastor for over 25 years. I have observed her as a fellow servant of our Lord and can recommend her to anyone who wants to see and hear a godly woman. Laurie will stand the close-up test in providing living proof of a loving God to a watching world. She is adored by her husband and family and respected by all who know her. She is sound in her theology and convictions. Her style of presentation is electrifying and women can sense her love for God and for them.” Dr. John Morgan, Sagemont Church
