Description


History COI was founded in 1984 by the late Jack Isleib and his wife, Rosa, inspired by their daughter Mary Alice's life-changing experience on a short term basketball outreach to Central America in 1979. The trip gave her first hand experience of another country and culture. Her trip served as catalyst into full-time ministry, and to this day is the inspiration for her boldness in sharing her faith, nation after nation. Before being named the Executive Director of COI after her father's passing in 2004, Mary Alice founded an international teaching ministry reaching over 50 nations, lived and worked in Europe and Russia, and served as a Senior Pastor for eight years. As an ordained minister with over 22 years of full-time ministry experience, her family's rich spiritual heritage, and God's grace, she is poised to bring COI into its best and most fruitful years

We believe in salvation by grace alone through faith in Christ. Man must be born again by receiving Jesus Christ personally in his heart & confessing Him as Lord (Romans 10:9-10). Good works are a subsequent fruit of salvation. ? We believe in the Holy Spirit's present ministry in & to the believer enabling him to live a godly life & serve God effectively. ?
