NOW HOPE is a non-profit ministry dedicated to helping people in developing nations who have limited access to the gospel, resources and education. Since 1996, we have traveled to over 48 countries and across the USA focusing on reaching the lost and training church leaders.
Vision: Evangelism & Discipleship in Developing Nations. We live by the verse, “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Quite simply, it fuels our calling and is our source of joy in life.
Why: Brian and Melissa were both dramatically impacted on their first mission trips. They saw the great need for sharing the gospel with those who have never accepted Jesus as Lord & Savior. Also, pastors and church leaders were hungry for discipleship and leadership training.
How: With the generous support from friends, businesses and churches we pay our own travel and ministry expenses to preach the gospel in the nations. Each year we work with local churches who arrange our evangelistic outreaches and leadership training sessions. In turn, the ripple effect touches the current and future generations to come. This is time and money well spent. This is our passion. This is our life. We are Now Hope.
Evangelism? Today approximately 7.4 billion people live on the earth and only 1/3 or 2.3 billion claim to be Christians. We’re committed to doing our part in reaching the remaining 4.6 billion people who have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Making Disciples? Unfortunately, numerous Christians in developing nations have limited access to the gospel, ministry training or development programs. In fact, many have a 4th grade education, at best. Forbes Magazine reports, “An estimate of $60 billion is spent annually by corporate America on learning and development programs.”
