This name is derived from Phillipians 1:6 which states "being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
It is these words of the apostle Paul that have inspired our student ministry's focus at Cook. We want to be able to say the same thing Paul did about every student that we minister to. We want to prepare them for more than just the next day or year of school, but to set them on a track as high school and jr. high school students that they will continue on for the rest of their lives, until that day of Christ Jesus. In seeking the best way to do this, we have found that a whole family approach is the most Biblical and effective way to do student ministry. Read more about our vision here.
