"Dr. Tate Cockrell is Christ centered and gospel focused.  He is the best at leading marriage conferences that are biblical and practical.  Therefore, he is the first person that I contact when I want someone to lead the church to have marriages that glorify God."  

                                                                           Dr. Ricky Cummings, Senior Pastor, FBC Vidalia , GA

"God has his hand on Dr. Tate Cockrell! We had Tate come in to do a Family Conference for our church last Spring. It was phenomenal! We have families in our church who are talking about it over a year later. If you have an opportunity to have Tate share with your faith family, do not hesitate! His ministry was a game changer for New Palestine! "  

                                    Dr. Josh Braddy, Senior Pastor, New Palestine Baptist Church, Picayune, MS


"We recently had Dr. Cockrell speak at our annual Family Discipleship Summit. He offered biblically solid, culturally relevant, and practically applicable teaching. Our folks left that event both challenged and encouraged. One of our attendees remarked, ‘I felt like I got a weekend retreat’s worth of knowledge’ out of only a few brief sessions. I would greatly encourage anyone who is looking for a speaker for an upcoming event to consider inviting Dr. Cockrell to fill that need. Your group will be greatly edified by his wealth of knowledge and his ability to connect God’s Word to every day life."  

              Jason Engle , Pastor of Students and Discipleship, Westwood Baptist Church, Roxboro, NC 


"Tate was a home run with our parents.  His solid content, practical applications, and candid delivery left our adults looking forward to his next visit."    

                                             Jason Holmes, Active Families Pastor, First Baptist Church, Collierville, TN

"When we walked into Dr. Tate's office, it was such a calm atmosphere. We were so nervous about talking to someone about our failing marriage. We connected with him immediately and it was as if he had known us for years. Within a few sessions our marriage began to see significant improvement. I am so thankful for his expertise, care, and compassion. I can't imagine where our marriage would be today if it were not for him. "

We recently hosted Dr. Tate Cockrell at Hocutt Baptist Church to lead our April Discipleship series on Marriage.  It was one of the best events we have ever had.  Dr. Cockrell is a terrific speaker and teacher.  Our people were blessed, informed and encouraged.  We are definitely having him back to minister to us.  I highly recommend him to you.

                                                             Dr. Steve L. Roy, Senior Pastor, Hocutt Baptist Church, Clayton, NC

Dr. Tate Cockrell was the keynote speaker of our 2016 Marriage and Family Weekend. He came highly recommended, and he didn't disappoint! His down-to-earth, humorous approach to marriage and family relationships is entertaining, relevant, and thoroughly biblical. Our time with him was absolutely unforgettable! We were challenged and encouraged in Christ by this talented, godly brother, and we hope to have him back very soon. I commend his ministry without reservation!

I thought our marriage was over. I never imagined that my husband and I would make it after 20 years of fighting and unhappiness. But we're happier than we have ever been after counseling with Dr. Tate. He's like a marriage E.R. doctor.
