WORSHIP PASTOR: Brennon Kok brennon@gncconline.com  Brennon serves as the Worship Pastor with Good News Community Church. He joined the Good News staff in April 2018. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Worship Degree at Northern Seminary. Brennon and his wife, Jordyn, are originally from Randolph, WI. They now reside in Milford with their two children Elijah and Elyse. You can find him enjoying carpentry, playing/writing music, getting tired out with a good pick-up game of basketball at the Okoboji YMCA or with Elijah, and spending time with Jordyn and the kids.  Worship isn’t just singing songs and raising a hand…whether it’s the “carrying the tv”, “my fish was this big”, “here, hold my baby”, “fixing the light bulb”, “goal posts”, or more. Worship is declaring our dependence on God and submitting to His will.
