Hi, I’m Larry Cole.

I’m the Founder and Lead Pastor of Torch Bearer Leadership Development in Boone, NC.


At the age of 25, I was still suffering from the effects of a broken childhood and my own bad decisions. I had little education, no money and even less hope of being a successful Man of God, Husband or Father.

In 1996 I found myself with a desperate hunger for God and that’s when things began to change.

Following a life-changing encounter with Jesus at the Brownsville Revival in Pensacola, FL., I married my best friend Carla, graduated from the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry and raised 2 children.

I was working with Fortune 500 companies while Pastoring, Teaching and Discipling others and began to impact multitudes in the Church and the marketplace with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Fire is still burning!



My heart is still burning passionately for Jesus and I live to help others gain that same passion and be victorious Believers.

I love to listen to people tell their individual story and help them find where they are and help chart the path of where God is leading them.

I love to teach how to be aware of God's Presence and how to experience

Personal Discipleship from Him!

I speak to congregations and groups, illuminating the Covenant God has made with us through His Son.
