“I will venture to go down, but remember that you must hold the ropes.”
– William Carey, Missionary to India
Lisa and I are tremendously grateful for the people who help us in our assignment of strengthening churches and leaders. If you are already a partner, thank you! If you’re considering supporting our work, I trust the following information will help you as you contemplate contributing to our ministry.
An amazing exchange took place after Jesus told Peter to go into deeper water and let down his nets for a catch of fish. “‘Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.’ And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats…” (Luke 5:5-7). Isn’t that amazing? So much more can be accomplished when people work together!
Lisa and I have been in full-time ministry since 1980, but in 2002, we received a specific assignment from the Lord to “strengthen churches and leaders.” To that end, we have applied and continue to apply ourselves diligently. Here’s a quick snapshot of what we have done and continue to do with the help of our partners:
- Traveled and taught God’s Word in 26 foreign nations and 46 states here in the U.S. over the years. In 2015, we were on the road 212 days and taught 273 times in various venues (ministers meetings, Bible School classes, helps seminars, church services, etc.).
- Resource pastors and missionaries through our website (tonycooke.org). Last year, more than a quarter of a million readers visited our site from 212 nations and territories. Fresh content is added monthly.
- Written seven books, one workbook, and produced five video training series accompanying the books. Various titles have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, and German. Four additional titles are currently being translated into Arabic.
Lisa and I are only able to carry out this work because we have a great team and faithful partners. Partners are those who believe in and pray for us, and who support this work financially. To those who already are partners with us, we thank you from the bottom of our heart!
