THE FORMER pastor of a snake-handling church has vowed to carry on handling serpents – despite almost dying after being bitten by a rattlesnake. Cody Coots is the ex-leader of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus’ Name church in Middlesboro, Kentucky, one of America’s only remaining snake-handling churches. The dangerous ritual had already cost the Pentecostal church its previous pastor, Cody’s father Jamie Coots, 42, after he was bitten by a rattlesnake and killed in 2014. The disturbing footage of Cody being bitten by a timber rattlesnake – the same snake that killed his his father – features in My Life Inside: The Snake Church, a two-part film from Barcroft TV. Cody was airlifted to hospital where he was eventually stabilised despite major swelling to his eyes, face and airways. Cody survived and recovered and, despite his ordeal, still attends the church and says he has no plans to give up handling snakes.

A NEW documentary has captured the startling moment a controversial American pastor is bitten by a deadly snake during a service. Cody Coots is the pastor at the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus’ Name church in Middlesboro, Kentucky – one of America’s only remaining snake-handling churches. The dangerous ritual had already cost the Pentecostal church its previous pastor, Cody’s father Jamie Coots, 42, after he was bitten by a rattlesnake and killed in 2014. And the shocking footage shows Cody Coots – his shirt splattered in blood – collapsing and being helped from his altar as the snake’s potentially lethal poison begins to take hold. The church’s story is told in My Life Inside: The Snake Church, the first film in a new series from Barcroft TV which gains unprecedented access to people who’ve chosen to live outside the norms of modern mainstream society.
