Kris and Brigi Cook



Kris and Brittany grew up in South Jersey. We met working at a small summer camp while K was studying at ATS and B was working on her undergrad. While dating, we believed we might be called overseas.

After getting married in the spring '11, that calling was further affirmed by our spiritual leaders and mentors, and we began searching for a church to complete our Home Service. By the end of 2013, we joined the team at True Vine Church Community in Philadelphia. During our two years there, we worked toward paying down our student loan debt, and welcomed our first daughter (Heidi). After two years in this NE Philly neighborhood of Wissinoming, we moved to Oakland, CA to join a predominately Chinese church, East Bay Alliance.

During our time there, we welcomed our second daughter, Mabel Frances and our family's heart for Europe continued to grow. So, in the January of 2017, we went as a family to visit the field. During this trip, the Spirit continued to speak to us and our draw to post-Christian France grew more deeply.

Later that year, we began the interview process with the National Office, and by the end of the year were commissioned to Bordeaux.


Since being commissioned in October, we are now working through the VISA application process as well as working closely with our CPD leadership to transition our church in a healthy way. We are preparing for Pre-Field training in Colorado Springs in June, time with family on the East Coast in July, and departure for language school in Albertville, France in August.

We love our Acts 1:8 family, and are grateful to every district (Metro, EPAD, and CPD) that has been a part of our journey so far, every church that has played a role in our overall spiritual growth, and every individual and mentor who has encouraged, exhorted, and walked alongside us over these years. With every struggle and every success, the faithfulness of Christ has been made evident through each of you. Thank you and Praise Him!

Please pray for these transitions and give thanks to our God for his continuous faithfulness, unending love, and remarkable provision in our lives.
