While the school provides quality education and affordable schooling for Pokot children, an important goal of the school is to provide a Christian outreach arm into the Pokot community. When children go to school, they return home and share what they have learned about Jesus Christ with their families. COPE provides several other avenues for evangelism of God's Word to the Pokot tribe as well.
The evangelism team travels all throughout Pokot sharing the Gospel of Jesus. Each week a different area is visited to show a video of Jesus that has been translated into the Pokot language. For many of the Pokot, this is their first experience hearing the gospel in their own language and the first itme they have seen the enactment of the life of Jesus.

The Pokot consider Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) a rite of passage and most girls expect to be circumcised. COPE responded to this dangerous practice by inviting Pokot girls to come to the Mission for a week of prayer, fellowship and education. Christian Pokot women teach the girls and local Pastors come to lead the girls in prayer and Bible Study. More

COPE continues to share the Gospel of Jesus with as many children and adults as possible. We have started a number of programs designed to teach and encourage the Pokot to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
