Community of Faith - Weekday Preschool Director 1

Meet Community of Faith:

In 2003, after nearly 10 years on the mission field, Mark and Laura Shook felt called to start a missions-based church in Cypress, TX. Over the last 17 years, we have grown the COF family by thousands of people, sent missions teams all over the world, partnered with organizations around Houston, and seen God move in big ways. 

The heartbeat of Community of Faith is seeing people from all different cultures know the love of Jesus Christ. Before we even had a building, we built an orphanage in Costa Rica. Missions have shaped our culture ever since.

It's been a great 17 years, but there's still so much more to come!
