& Vision

"We serve you,
because HE loves you."

The Mission

The mission of HOPE International is to reach people where they are. God cares about meeting people's needs and we do too. We believe that God has given everyone a unique gift and that gift needs to be used to reach those who are lost and hurting.  

The Vision

The vision of HOPE International is to bring churches together to reach the lost and hurting.  We firmly believe if you only meet someone's physical needs,  you have simply put a Band-Aid on the problem.
We believe true healing comes when that person is introduced to Jesus. This is why every event or outreach we do is through a local church. 

your calling is a purpose bigger than yourself.


Whether someone is hurting, hungry, homeless, going through a crisis, or recovering from a disaster, we want to be there with resources to meet their needs and show them the love of Jesus. 


Because God cares about their needs, so do we.  As Christians, we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This means, we are to GO and REACH those in need and show them that God loves them. 


Everyone has a God-given gift that can be used to give back. By connecting people's hobbies with their passions, we have developed HI5 teams all over the world who are serving in creative ways every day in our five mission fields.

People don't
want to
hear how much
god loves them..


How we started...

"If you continue to give, the resources will never stop." - Pastor Tim

Pastor Tim Russell had a dream to bring churches, communities, and organizations together with one common goal...to reach humanity for Christ.  In 2009, this dream became a reality when HOPE International was birthed.  Starting with a passion to reach hurting people, Pastor acquired a warehouse and started buying food.  As they started distributing food, other resources started pouring in. God then took Pastor and showed him an 80,000 square foot warehouse. 
This warehouse would become the new Hope International headquarters. God promised that it would never be empty. Two months after moving into this building, a major disaster happened in a town only 20 minutes away. HOPE International then became a distribution site, shelter, and would organize teams for the rebuild of this town.  By the end of that year, HOPE International was a full functioning Crisis and Disaster Relief Organization.
