Kelvin Cochran has dedicated over 30 years of service to fighting fires. Now one of the most decorated Fire Chiefs in America was suspended, investigated and, despite investigators finding no cause for further action, was fired because of his Christian faith.

“To actually lose my childhood dream come true profession, where all of my expectations have been greatly exceeded, over my faith – the very faith that caused me to get my job – ultimately has cost me my job.”

“Those principles that I was taught as a kid – faith in God, education, respect authority and treat others people like you wanted to be treated – really fed my career and life success.”

Hear from Chief Cochran in-person at the 2015 Friends of the Family Banquet in Hershey, PA on Friday, October 30. For details, click here or go to tinyurl.com/metaxasbanquet.
