a ministry that began with vision and passion.
Charles H. Cook had a passion for ministry to Native Americans. As the
"missionary to the Pima Indians" beginning in 1870, Cook worked side-by-side
with the Pima people as both missionary and teacher.
Cook also had a vision. A vision that has grown and changed to educate,
empower, and equip Native Americans for leadership in their churches and
communities. Cook Bible School was the first formal expression of that vision
back in 1911.
Today, Cook Native American Ministries continues to expand the vision and
passion of Charles H. Cook beyond the walls of a traditional school building -
to bring new and greater opportunities for leadership education to Native Americans than
