Assistant Pastor for Church Planting and Connections
Byron has served in ministry for over 5 years and began leading pastorally in the last two years. He has been a part of a multi-ethnic church in Memphis, TN, where he was able to further his education while gaining hands on experience as a pastoral resident. He is married to Kimyatta Cogdell and is the father of Parker and Robyn Cogdell. Byron came to Daytona Beach from North Carolina in 2006 to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Public Relations & Advertising from Bethune-Cookman University. Upon graduating, he served as a Public Relations Specialist for two of Daytona Beach’s largest non-profit organizations. His love for the local and universal church pushed him into vocational ministry with a focus on church planting and leadership.
Byron serves Christ Community Church as a pastoral presence that seeks to get people connected and walk with them through their spiritual growth. Byron and his family will also be planting a gospel-centered, multi-ethnic, disciple making church in the Midtown area of Daytona Beach in the near future.
