Jump Aboard Ship!

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. (John 15:16)

Join this exciting mission as a Missionary of HopeYour gifts of time & talent will help people encounter Christ and live in hope.

Many people serve this mission in a variety of ways: staff, volunteers, benefactors, and prayer intercessors. Each in his or her own way is a Missionary of Hope.

Why we say ‘Missionaries of Hope’

You do not need to be perfect to begin anew, nor do you have to ‘know everything’ about your faith before sharing it. Jesus calls us to be missionary disciples; women and men who ‘go out’ to spread the Gospel, as we personally allow God to draw us closer & perfect us in holiness.

We believe that the best way to do this is through the message of hope. So many people have lost hope and struggle to find it, or even doubt it exists. Through ‘casting the net’ as Jesus told Peter to do (John 21:6), we seek to ‘catch’ women and men for Christ; the One in whom we hope! As our founders like to say, “We catch ’em, He cleans ’em!”
