Ron and Jeanette Cooke

Church planting and pastoral work in the Netherlands and Germany

Ron and Jeanette are stationed in Beugen, the Netherlands, and involved in mentoring, discipleship training, Alpha & Big Life groups and planting of house churches (small groups that meet on Sunday morning/evening or on one evening during the week) in that region and over the border into Germany. Ron has helped IBC in many ways over the years, also as a reular visiting preacher. Ron and Jeanette work with the missionary organisation WEC International and are both engaged full-time in this ministry. They often come into contact with many people who are seeking the meaning to life and who are obviously ‘sent to them’ by Divine leading. They love sharing their stories of the marvellous ways in which the Lord has led/is leading them, of the wonderful ways in which He has provided over the past 30 years in the Netherlands and of the absolute miracles that He has performed in leading others to them, providing visas and then Dutch citizenship, etc. etc. Prayer and listening to the Lord are priorities in their ministry. Ron and Jeanette are very, very grateful to IBC for their support in various ways and for the lovely warm welcome they experience when visiting.
