Apostle Warren Coger was a true and dedicated man of God
An integral part of Miracle Tabernacle Prayer and Cathedral, his first exposure to the ministry came as a result of his joining IDC (Interdenominational Choir) of Longview, Tx where he first met the Honorable Archbishop Lawson in 1977. He later became part of the crusade work S.W.A.T. a ministry organized by the Archbishop in the late 1980's. As the crusade evolved into Miracle Tabernacle House Of Prayer, Apostle Warren Coger continued on in the work, becoming one of the charter members of Miracle Tabernacle House of Prayer. He maintained an abiding love for the Archbishop, attributing his spiritual growth to the Man Of God, as he says " Archbishop Lawson taught me to be spiritually intimate with God...How to embrace the Spirit of God."
Apostle Warren Coger was ordained to the office of Apostle in 2001 under The Honorable Archbishop. He believed strongly in, and deeply embraced his call to the work of Apostle and served faithfully in that capacity.
Apostle Warren Coger was a studious and learned man with a passion for all things "sports". A virtual encyclopedia, he was " the information super highway". He knew every game, every player, that player's stats, the coaching staff, and any other piece of trivia associated with the game.
