The Army is responsible for Alliance Bible Church having Melanie Cook as our Office Manager. She came on board the beginning of July, 2008, when her husband, Kevin, was transferred back to Ft. Richardson from Ft. Bliss, in El Paso, TX. This was the second tour for Cooks in Alaska, the first being with the Stryker Brigade here in Anchorage where her husband's unit fought in Mosul and Bahgdad for 16 months. Kevin retired from the military 5 years ago after 28 years of service and currently works in the professional arena. Their daughter, Lexi, who is a ballet dancer, was in middle school when they moved here and is now in her Senior year in college at Butler University as a Dance Performance major.
Melanie grew up in the church as a Minister's daughter where she would sometimes help out in the church office. During her first tour here in Anchorage she was the Office Manager for Chapel by the Sea, where she and her family still attend.
Melanie has a heart for the ABC congregation and continues to strive to make sure that each and every person she comes in contact with will feel the warmth of God's love.
