ABOUT US

FREDDIE COLE, Chief Executive Officer, Senior Pastor

was born in Austin, Texas, but spent most of his youth between Maryland and Virginia as a 2 sport All-American. To fast forward, Freddie moved to Clermont, Florida in the fall of 2011 from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Travel has been no stranger to him as he has played professional basketball in over 5 countries during his career. No matter where he went, he always found time to connect with the people in his community, regardless of their social status. He has always had a heart for people and has heard many times that he was going to become a pastor and lead a ministry that will change the world.

In 2007, he started a non-profit organization in Tallahassee, Florida called All Day Athletics, Inc. This program was centered toward inner-city youth that have been left behind. He used basketball as the tool to mentor, encourage, and help them to find their purpose. In 2 years of running that organization, he and his team of mentors helped over 20 inner city kids change their lives, and go to college (some on athletic scholarships). The organization lasted another 2 years after he got married in 2009, when he moved to Michigan to start another chapter of his life with his new wife.

 

Freddie was given a vision of the One Body Outreach, Inc in 2011 and the doors were opened for him to begin laying the foundations of that ministry in July of 2016. He founded One Body Outreach, Inc. with his wife Khalilah and things took off from there. Grace Restoration Church was the first ministry to come of it, in which he is currently Senior Pastor. He currently sits as the CEO of all 3 areas of One Body Outreach's ministries which include the church, Rescue and Restore, and Kingdom Prep Academy.

 

Freddie is a class of 2016 graduate of Grand Canyon University with a Master' in Educational Leadership, a class 2000 graduate of Bethune-Cookman University, a certified educator, an Insurance Agent, and runs an online business. He has 3 daughters (Arianah, Anaya, and Amariah) and 1 son who is named after him (Freddie III). He credits his success to God and his beautiful wife and friend Khalilah Cole.  You can reach Freddie Cole at pastorcole@onebodyoutreach.org or 321.230.4546

We will also house our mentoring program for troubled youth here as well.

Rescue and Restore is a program we launched 2 years ago that rescues those who are homeless or in need of assistance with housing and/or food. He have fed over 500 families with the help of Second Harvest and FAITH Neighborhood Center!

While in the transitional housing, we will teach them budgeting, help with resume writing, interviewing skills, babysitting services, and transportation to job interviews. We want to house each family rent/utility free for the first four months,then they will take over the lot rent and utilities as a stepping stone to becoming self-sufficient.
