Living Hope Church is dedicated to making a difference in the world. We invite you to join us in bringing a living hope to our global partners through giving and mission trips.
Where do we partner?
We partner with a variety of organizations around the globe, but below you will find more detailed information about three areas we physically go to on a regular basis. If you would like to partner with us in supporting global missions, you can use the GIVE button above, or you can contact us if you are interested in going in person on our next mission trip.
The Nanda Hostel
135 children call Nanda home. Here on this 7-acre compound, they have food, shelter, safety, education, and basic medication care. Just as important, they are taught the gospel and raised up in the Christian faith, even when the cost of following Christ is high.
Over the years, waves of persecution against Christians have swept through the region. People were injured, some lost their lives, homes and churches were burned, people fled to the jungle to escape. The tribal pastors and congregations suffered, but they have kept the faith and continue to bear witness to Jesus Christ as they rebuild their lives and churches.
Sharing the Gospel
Leaders from Nanda have been patiently building relationships with a remote tribe of animists who have no written language and had never heard the gospel. Building trust by first showing human compassion and care, they are now able to share the gospel story of the God of compassion. We celebrate with joy and thanksgiving the first baptisms in these villages!
Working Side by Side
We work with Kenyan Christians on projects that will further the mission and ministry of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa:
- Church buildings so that congregations do not have to meet under the Acacia trees
- Schools to provide children with an education
- Rescue centers to house and educate young girls before they are married off in arranged marriages
- Bore holes to provide clean water for a community
Worship Bridges Cultures
We worship together, as the language barrier is bridged by the faith that makes us one. We share fellowship in worship, work, and play. We learn about, and from, one another as first world and third world Christians meet at the foot of the cross.
God’s Incredible Creativity
We spend our last 2 days on safari in the Maasai Mara, marveling at God’s creative power.
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind.” And it was so.
Wilson Rehab Foundation
Wilson Rehabilitation Foundation’s purpose is to improve access to and quality of orthopedic care offered by Christian mission hospitals and organizations for disabled children. The Foundation focuses primarily in Kenya, but also in the Democratic Republic of The Congo and Cameroon. Founded by one of our members, Dr. Doug Kerr, the monies directed here help cover medical care costs for patients cannot afford it otherwise.
Building Homes and Churches
Fifteen local pastors in neighboring communities work together to select 3 or 4 projects each time a group goes down. Projects include building or repairing homes for local church members, or helping to build and/or repair churches.
Lidia, a local community advocate, helps promote relationships between the team and neighbors through home visits, time with the children, and the annual Three Kings Day (Epiphany) celebration when over 100 children gather for a party, entertainment, and gifts.
