Sue Cooper

Sue came to faith in Christ in July of 1974 after the man who sold her a bicycle invited her to the Billy Graham Foundation film Time to Run.  She responded to the truth that “He who knew no sin became sin on our behalf so we could become the righteousness of God in Him.”  2 Corinthians 5:21.
Sue has served as the Secretary/Receptionist/Administrative Assistant on and off since becoming a church member in 1984.  She came to Chicago in 1983 to attend a 1-year Bible program at Moody Bible Institute, became connected with Armitage and after her year of study at Moody, decided to stay in Chicago.  When asked by former members “Are you still there?” she affectionately responds “Yes, there’s glue on my chair.”  It is a privilege to serve on a church staff where the priority is the salvation of the lost and the obedience and growth of believers.
Sue especially enjoys the reception duties associated with her position: processing phone calls, tending to appointments as well as an occasional visitor now and then.  She also enjoys the variety of her work for Charles Lyons, Senior Pastor.
