Hope City Brings H.O.P.E. to Missions
Are you wondering how does Hope City bring H.O.P.E. to missions? We do this by Helping Other People Experience...Jesus, Salvation, Freedom, Education, Peace, Safety and Wholeness. That's what missions is all about. Hope City supports missions who bring the message of H.O.P.E., which is the message of Jesus, to the people they serve. Let's meet some of the people who serve in missions at home and abroad.
