Faith Christian Fellowship’s Leadership Summits are gatherings that give ministers and leaders the opportunity to continue their spiritual growth. We believe that no one should have to do ministry alone. Through heartfelt relationships, we can all grow together; equipping each other every step of the way. The Leadership Summits are a connecting place that gives people the opportunity to develop relationships with other ministers and leaders who are going through the same things. With the powerful praise and worship, prayer, and messages from speakers of Faith and the Holy Spirit bringing the word, the Leadership Summits are sure to leave everyone feeling empowered to fulfill the calling of God on their lives.

Fred & Cookie Brothers
Fred and Cookie were both called into ministry at a very young age. They married in 1981 and soon after moved to South Africa where they served under Ray McCauley at RHEMA bible church. For 3 years they functioned as assistant pastors and instructors in the bible school. They then moved back to Tulsa where Fred served in multiple capacities at RHEMA including Crusade director of KHM, associate pastor, and eventually Dean. Cookie acted as the Nursery Coordinator and Ministry Tech in Prayer and Healing School while expanding their family to include a son J.D. in 1985 and a daughter Whitney in 1987.
In 1991, the Brothers family moved to Edmonton, Alberta Canada where they pastored their first Church. Upon receiving a strong leading from the Lord, they returned to Tulsa in 1994 where Fred took a position at Faith Christian Fellowship Int’l and Cookie with Harrison House. In 1997, Dr. Buddy Harrison started a new church called Father’s House and asked Fred and Cookie to serve as his assistant pastors.
The following year Dr. Harrison went home to be with the Lord and Fred and Cookie became the senior pastors of Father’s House Church. After serving as senior pastors of Father’s House for 17 years, Fred and Cookie resigned their position to their spiritual son, Jon Coats on Easter day of 2015. During an FCF board meeting in 2016, the spirit of God moved upon Mrs. Harrison and she appointed Cookie to the position of CEO. Together Fred and Cookie Brothers have a strong call to reach people, restore lives, and release purpose domestically and around the world because they truly believe that no one should do ministry alone.
