Birth of a Movement
Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, because of your faithful love, because of your truth. - Psalm 115:1
May the passion of hearts and the testimony of our actions be Christ-centered and God-glorifying. For our purpose on this earth is to bring God alone glory, our call as Christians is to make disciples through the power of His word.
2003 - 2004: FOUNDING
When our founder started The Hope Movement 14 years ago he was a kid with a dream. No money, no connections, only a pain in his heart for those in need and a calling from God to help them. A few friends, family members, and even strangers heard the cry of his heart and took a chance in believing in him and gave, opening the door to start The Hope Movement.
