About Us

About Us
After nearly 20 years of ministry and nonprofit leadership, we are excited to respond to the Great Commission in a new way. In mid August of 2018 we made the transition with our two boys to live out our call in Croatia. Since then we have been adapting to our host country, learning the language, and adjusting to the culture.  

We want to say how much we appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us and the ministry God has called us to in Zagreb. Seriously, thanks for stopping by! We hope you'll keep us in your prayers and sign up for our newsletter so we can keep in touch and share updates with you from time to time.

You are a blessing to us and we thank you for partnering with us in ministry.

The Coopers

"Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well." -1 Thessalonians 2:8

Mission & Ministry

What we're up to and why

We are partnering with the Kušlanova Church in ministry to reach young people and families. We’ve committed to spend the next five years (or longer) there learning the language, loving the people, and sharing the Gospel with our neighbors. Our ministry focus will be to emphasize that a relationship with Jesus is transformative and life-giving, not merely religious behavior. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to change people’s hearts and minds and that God will be glorified in Croatia as more and more come to experience freedom in Christ. These are some of the specific things we are planning to do under the supervision of the Kušlanova eldership: ● Study the language and the culture so we can assimilate and build deeper relationships. ● Follow up on connections made through current evangelistic efforts like Champs Camp and Let’s Start Talking. ● Host weekly prayer gatherings and Bible studies in our home. ● Develop biblically-based resources, interest groups, and training/educational opportunities to support families and address the issues that affect them. ● Watch and pray and be open to the Lord’s leading.
