ABOUT OUR CHURCH
office: (864) 964-0049
As an Anderson native, I have always loved this community. I was raised in the church, and gave my life to Christ at an early age during Vacation Bible School. My walk with Jesus grew deeper through the influence of Christian friends and leaders throughout high school and college. I received a Bachelor’s degree in business from Anderson University and then married Anna in 1996. I served for several years in various areas of ministry within my home church. As I worked and served in this community, God began to speak to me and place on my heart a calling into ministry…a calling to plant a church. I am passionate about the need to reach the lost, proclaim the love of Christ and provide a place of worship that will truly disciple believers in their walk. I have a Master’s degree from Anderson University’s Clamp Divinity School. My wife, Anna, and I have 2 children.
My name is Will Cook and I am from Rock Hill, SC. I accepted Christ at an early age but it was not until I became involved in student ministry in High School that I grew in my faith. In the late 90’s, I helped start a Young Life chapter and served as a Student Ministry Intern. I felt a call to student ministry and have served as a full-time youth minister and now serve as the Youth Pastor at The Point Church in a bi-vocational capacity. I am a graduate of Anderson University and married my wife, Amy, in 2002. We have four beautiful girls: Caroline, Charlize “Charli”, Laurel Claire “Lolly”, and Fielding.
I am thankful for the calling He has placed on my life to share who He is, why He came, and how we are responsible to share Him with others. We believe God uses His Word to speak directly to us, so our student ministry relies heavily on studying scripture. In order for our students to grow in their relationship with Christ, we encourage them to spend time daily with him in prayer and devotion, but also in a group setting where God uses us to encourage one another in our faith. We meet on Sunday evenings at 6 for fellowship and then on Wednesdays at 6:30pm for Bible Study at The Point Church.
I grew up in a Christian home and became a follower of Jesus at an early age. Creds to my parents! I have to give credit to one other person. I will never forget the sweet love of my first Sunday School teacher, Mrs. Margaret. She taught me the Bible stories on felt boards! I LOVED felt boards. Mrs. Margaret loved Jesus. She loved the children who had less. She loved the children who had more. She loved ME! I knew it! I could see it. I could feel it. It was real.
Is this what the crowds felt when they followed Jesus? I always thought how wonderful it would be to share Jesus like her. Do others see Christ’s love in me?
I graduated from Anderson College in 1998 earning a BS in Elementary Education. I married my best friend, Will Cook in 2002 and worked in the Software Industry until October 2015 when I decided to become a full-time mother to our four daughters, Caroline, Charli, Lolly, and Fielding. This has given me the ability to dedicate more time to Children’s Ministry at The Point Church. I love my little babies from nursery to fifth grade! I pray that Christ would use me to teach these children how to love and serve selflessly just as Mrs. Margaret did.
Breathe on me, Breath of God
Fill me with life anew.
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.
—Edwin Hatch (1878)
