The Church is called to share the gospel with the world and to meet physical needs in Jesus’ name. We are commanded to do both of these things in our local context as well as in communities around the world. To that end, a minimum of 10% of our annual budget is allocated for outreach.
Our global efforts are focused in three places:
We have made a multi-year commitment to fund two church planters in a South Asian country where there is desperate poverty and very few Christians. Our ongoing support provides for their theological training, ministry costs, and living expenses.
We have partnered with Hope for Honduras in their work to address spiritual and physical needs. They have a daily feeding ministry, Bible Kinder program (similar to VBS), Spanish School tutoring program, Bilingual School, women’s ministry, youth group, a church with a Honduran pastor, construction ministry, trade-skills ministry, and a clinic with a Honduran doctor among other things. Real Hope plans to take a team to Honduras each summer.
Real Hope sponsors children through World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization that partners with communities around the world to address the causes of poverty and injustice. Your family can change a child's life by giving them access to food, healthcare, education, and the gospel. Sponsor a child today!
Our local efforts are focused in two main areas, though we participate in various other community projects as needs arise.
North-American church planting
The Association of Related Churches (ARC) provides support, guidance, and resources to launch and grow life-giving churches. Real Hope was planted by ARC and we now give each month toward the launch of new churches in North America.
We believe the best way to serve our community is to partner with local schools that already have relationships with the families in our area. We currently partner with Adolphus Elementary and are in the process of adopting another local school in our area.
