OUR STORY

Throughout the Bible, the Lord encounters His people and calls them into purpose and destiny.  Our Lord does have good plans for us! His plans are to expand His kingdom and for His glory! We can be filled with expectation and faith through hearing the Lord’s voice. May His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Hope Ministries International is committed to being a voice crying out in the wilderness preparing a way for God to move in individuals, churches, cities, and nations through worship, prayer, administration, and instruction. 

Additionally, HOPE is called to birth individuals, churches, cities, and nations into their God-given destinies through prayer by simply hearing His voice and obeying His instructions. We will train prophetic intercessors who listen and obey God’s voice, and also, raise up a network of Houses of Prayerful Expectation locally, nationally, and globally. It is time for the intercessors, prophets, missionaries, and revival movements to come forth.

18 years ago we were gripped with that question.  How hungry were we for God?In January, 2005, I set aside the first 7 days to fast and pray.  During that time, I had a thought for a local pastor.  I went to him the next week.  "Pastor Ken, I believe Portage Christian...

Wrestling with God

Wrestling with God

For the last nine months, God had been speaking to me privately about moving into HOPE fulltime.  He had spoken that the time would come when I would no longer be a pastor at City Point Church and I would be serving full-time as a prayer missionary with...

Do you struggle with prayer? 

You may not believe me but for years I struggled with prayer.  I didn’t know how to have a personal prayer time, let alone lead a prayer group. I never planned to lead a prayer ministry.  Here is my story recorded on Facebook Live in August 2019.  

Be encouraged, folks!  If God could use me in prayer ministry, He has a plan for you too!   We are all called to pray.  God loves to hear your prayers. 

 Let go of your reluctance.  Start where you are.  Find the joy in intercession!

 

Are you a reluctant intercessor?
