Cooper Taylor :: 6.10

Cooper Taylor

On April 3, 2012, the city of Forney, Texas (home of the something beautiful podcast) was struck by an F3 tornado. The storm damaged homes across the city but specifically the tornado tore across an 8-mile stretch of land, running right through the Diamond Creek Subdivision.

After watching the tornado take shape and touchdown from his office, Cooper Taylor and his co-workers immediately took off to survey the damage. What they saw led them to spring into action and opened the doors of c|Life Church as a central hub for all donations for storm relief and recover. What was just an instinct reaction, became Cooper’s full-time focus for the next several months.

Hear some of Cooper’s story on this week’s podcast.
