Ignite hope in your church and around the world with a Gospel-centered partnership.
We believe holistic transformation in the world’s most vulnerable communities occurs when one community partners with another.
Holistic transformation is rooted in three things:
Everything we do is in response to the gospel and an opportunity for discipleship (James 1:27).
The currency of the Kingdom is relationship. Our model transforms both communities through the power of relationship and cross-cultural sharing of passions, gifts, and talents (1 Thess. 2:8).
Community transformation is achieved through strategic, locally-led, and asset-based, sustainable solutions to overcoming poverty.
By becoming a HopeChest Partner, your congregation becomes a catalyst to sustainability by:
Our two-way transformational approach not only transforms the community you support but your congregation as well!
Members of your congregation will experience:
- Unification through shared experiences
- Spiritual growth, leadership opportunities, calls to missions, and opportunities for members of your congregation to use their gifts and talents
- Increased cultural awareness, empathy, and understanding as the global Church expands
Become a Catalyst for Community Change
Tell Us About Yourself.
Part of building a relationship is getting to know those involved. We’ll work closely with you to identify areas your community is passionate about so we can best partner you with an overseas community.
Visit a CarePoint.
There is power in an experience. We’ll take you on a Vision Trip to visit some CarePoints in the country you’re interested in partnering with. This gives you an opportunity to then choose the CarePoint that is the best match for you and your community, as well as experience firsthand the need for partnership and your potential impact.
Create a Development Plan.
No two CarePoints are alike. In partnership with local leaders at your CarePoint, we’ll create a development plan to help measure success. Using an asset-based approach, we’ll outline specific community goals, objectives and vision for that particular community. The development plan is based on our Survive, Thrive, Succeed model.
Start Building Relationships.
Our Community-to-Community model provides a rich opportunity for people in your church to get involved in holistic and transformative work. Members of your congregation will be equipped and empowered to serve cross-culturally in a healthy way.
Your congregation can build relationships with your CarePoint by:
Becoming a HopeChest Friend
Going on a Partner Visit
Funding a Project
HopeChest is a beautiful bridge that connects the hearts and resources of our community to the lives and needs of the children and families at the CarePoint. The foundation of every HopeChest mission is relationship. Through these relationships, God is working miracles not only in the communities we serve, but also in the hearts of partners.
