Outreach Partnerships

And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world.” -Acts 1:8

Our goal is for all people everywhere to know God’s grace and truth. To help us accomplish that goal we partner with individuals and organizations who share our heart for outreach.

We greatly value our outreach partners and encourage you to check out each of our current partners to learn more about their specific work. We invite you to find a ministry in a location where you can engage and help make a difference. Visit here on a regular basis to see how Hope’s Outreach Ministry is growing.
