Quinton Cools grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and like any true Oregonian, he can identify the perfect cup of coffee. He is the fifth of nine children, each of whom have served with TeenPact.
His TeenPact story began when he followed in the footsteps of his four older siblings and attended his first Four Day class. After spending a semester serving as a TeenPact Intern and then again as a Program Director, Quinton returned home with plans to pursue a career in medicine as a nurse. That summer, through several uniquely timed conversations, Quinton believed God was leading him into full time ministry, and so he moved to Richmond to work for the national office.
Quinton’s love for strong community is evident in everything he does, such as serving as a youth and worship leader at his church, spending time with friends and family, and playing any and every kind of sport. Having graduated in 2015 with a BA in Business Administration, Quinton is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity from Western Seminary. Quinton and his amazing wife Kelsey share an intense love for coffee, people, and gospel-centered discipleship. They recently welcomed their first daughter, Addison, into their lives in early 2018 and could not be happier!
