Ministry is never bigger than the ONE person in front of you.
What We Do
They say that water is life; without water we would only survive a few days. Water is the top physical issue troubling humanity. Only 3 percent of the water on the earth is drinkable. More people die from water issues in our world than wars. At HOPE2, we are convicted that sharing God’s love involves caring for those in need of safe water.
Since 2006 HOPE2 has been training pastors in Africa. A good leader is always a student and their need for quality training in the Word of God is essential. Our training that began in Liberia has expanded to a vision to train leaders in all 54 countries in Africa. We are convicted that training leaders waters the thirsty as much as any other thing we are privileged to be a part of. We are dedicated to helping those who are helping others.
Some believe that the lack of education keeps the poor chained to their poverty. The Bible says, “without vision people perish”. Education helps create dreams, possibilities, and vision. HOPE2 has witnessed firsthand the power of educating the impoverished. We have heard their dreams and marveled at the vision awakening out of the most broken places. Our director in Liberia made this powerful statement: “When Hope Academy graduates their first class of seniors in a few years, we will graduate a revival into this country”. We are convicted that God’s love is shared well through providing education to those in need.
Small, solvable medical issues that are ignored turn into devastating, unmanageable suffering. HOPE2 seeks to help those we serve in simple ways. Most of our neighbors don’t need heart surgery, they need loving care that is within our abilities to give. In many of the places we serve, untreated malaria kills thousands each year. We have served in orphanages where every single child is suffering from horrible parasites that can be taken care of. We are convicted that sharing God’s love involves caring for simple needs among the suffering.
Hope given in sustainable ways has the power to grow communities beyond what we can do in a simple visit. HOPE2 believes in agricultural education and has found an incredible program that we teach called Farming God’s Way. We are convicted that God’s love is given when you help others learn to grow food to provide for their own needs.
When God says, “Go”, we go.
When God says, “Put down roots”, we put down roots. The great commission is about sharing the Gospel with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Our reason for going can be summed up in that we are called to lift high the name of Christ and bring glory to God in all we say and do. In each place we go there are opportunities to invest educationally, medically, relationally and so many other ways but the underlying heartbeat in all of these things is to be able to show Jesus’ love and to share in His mission. Luke 12:48 says that to whom much is given, much will be required. We have been blessed so that we may share that blessing with others; so that the flow of grace and freedom from God does not stop with us but continues to impact lives and change hearts.
The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
– Matthew 25:40
