House of Hope

Providing access to quality education, leadership development, family support and most importantly, an intimate understanding of Jesus in order to create sustainable change.

Outreach

Offering opportunity for education, nutrition, and empowerment alongside Gospel-centered teaching and discipleship, we envision villages transformed and thriving, for the greater glory of God.

 

House of Hope

Our goal is to see the God-given potential inside each of our scholars unleashed and the trajectory of their lives beautifully interrupted.

We believe access to quality education is an essential key to seeing sustainable change take place in the villages and communities we are involved in. That is why, in partnership with their families, we have opened a safe home for girls from the village to come live and receive an education at no financial costs to them. At House of Hope, girls have the unique opportunity to grow deeply in their relationship with God through daily teaching and modeling of Biblical principles, to grow in servant leadership as they join us in outreaches and service opportunities, and excel in a variety of life skills and enrichment activities they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

The Foundation of House of Hope

Our hope is these four pillars allow us to create the sustainable change necessary to break the cycle of poverty and lack of opportunity while leading others to Christ.

Servant Leadership

Our ultimate aim is that the tiny, ordinary moments of life would be interwoven with the gospel; small moments would allow for opportunities of transformation and learning.

We provide every scholar with a loving home and invested staff mentors who counsel, teach, discipline, and walk with each girl through every phase of life while also partnering with their families.

Our scholars have the unique opportunity to attend the best local schools and pursue a course of study of their own choosing for college. We support and aid their decisions and path towards future success. 

We desire for our graduates to humbly pursue Christlikeness in their daily lives, serving others sacrificially, and profoundly impacting their families and communities by boldly bringing the message of Christ's salvation to a broken world.

It was a honor for House of Hope and TRIM to take her under their wing. Since receiving support, Nicole has blossomed. Her joy in life is contagious and we love seeing her attend school, help with cooking, riding her bike and learning to communicate through sign language. We will love her forever.

It's no surprise, Febelyn is the first to take care of others when they are feeling under the weather. She is one special young lady!

 Our Motivation 

The dream for House of Hope came to life after our team had been in the village for a few years and witnessed how young girls are often forced into marriage before the age of 12. Instead of having the opportunity or access to education beyond elementary school, these girls were rushed into a life of immense responsibility, childbearing, and hardship at an impossibly young age.

Listen to "Sarah's" story as she describes the all too common stories of girls from the village whose childhood was cut short because of child marriage.

 

Outreach

Offering opportunity for education, nutrition, and empowerment alongside Gospel-centered teaching and discipleship, we envision villages transformed and thriving, for the greater glory of God.

Ministry Outreach

Vital Support

The villages we serve are often in hard to reach places and rampant with poverty, illness and a lack of access to crucial resources creating an abundant of needs. Through our holistic approach in ministry, we target both the spiritual and the physical. 

Our passionate team travels every week hours into beautiful, yet remote mountain villages where our friends greet us with smiles. We provide food, medical care and necessary resources. We offer travel for medical care, classes to learn a profitable trade or help on the farm or with sick children. Our goal is to help in ways that most benefit the families acute and long-term needs so they can be successful.  

Since our time in these villages began in 2016, we have seen

God move in both the big and powerful, and the small and mundane. We are equally in awe of it all, and never tire in watching Him work.

 

We are thankful for your support that allows us to reach people who are in forgotten areas of the world. 

 

Literacy Programs

Imagine the sight. Women- mostly mothers carrying babies on both hips, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers with wrinkles that seem to shine when they smile, leaning in close as we practice alphabet sounds. Ah..Ah…A. Buh..Buh..B. These literacy classes happen on what feels to us like holy ground. These women have every reason not to be there and every excuse not to even try. Most of them have lived over half of their life never reading a single word or knowing how to write their own name. They have laundry that needs to get washed and hung out to dry while the sun is still hot. They have farms ready for harvesting so their 9 children can eat. And husbands who expect them home soon to start the fire for hot coffee. Culture tries to shame them; convincing women they’re too old and they shouldn’t embarrass themselves with something so childish.

And yet, they still come. To learn…to laugh…to dream.

Our literacy classes were birthed out of a desire to get a Bible into the hands of every family. We longed for the women we sit with in Bible Study every week to be able to leave our circle and continue learning and reading the Word at home by themselves or with their kids, but we knew this would never be possible until they knew how to read.

So we started meeting weekly before Bible Study to practice phonetics and handwriting. And slowly, as they learn and become more confident in their abilities, they start to smile more and stand a little taller. We believe these women, empowered by Jesus Christ, have what it takes to succeed in their pursuit of literacy. And we are excited for what that means in the future as we strive to see homes and families saturated with the truth of God’s Word.

“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it from you.”

Dream Big Club

Every week we gather in the park down the road or huddle onto basketball courts, in tents and under bridges…whatever it takes to meet together. The sound of kids’ laughter fills the air beautifully as they play games and sings songs and then lean in around the circle to hear the Bible story. Moms and dads bring their bowls and cups and whatever container they can find to receive a warm meal for the day. We encourage them from the Word or through prayer, and often just their smiles and joy do the same for us. During the summers, we host Village Bible Camp, a week long dive into Bible stories, worship and quality time in our partnership villages. Since starting VBC and Dream Big Cluub, we now have the help of families who support and love TRIM. 

We believe Jesus modeled ministry through relationship and we strive to do the same. Through consistently showing up in the lives of our neighbors and friends, we expect God, through His Holy Spirit, to transform and strengthen their lives. 

 
 

Ministry Outreach 

At TRIM, our ministry programs are saturated with Gospel teaching and biblical encouragement. We know that to give food for their stomachs or enrichment for their minds is only temporary at best, without Jesus Christ to satisfy their souls. By offering opportunity for education, discipleship, and empowerment, we envision families and communities in the Mindanao region of the Philippines transformed and thriving both physically and spiritually, for the greater glory of God.

Most of these villages know of the name of Jesus, but they know little to nothing about a real relationship with Him. With weekly ministries for men, women and children, we envision these villages transformed and thriving, for the greater glory of God.

 Multiply: Men's Bible Study

 Women's Life Group

The men are the decision makers in the village. To see men's hearts turn to Christ means ripple effects across the entire community. 

In the village, if the mother comes to know Christ, often the rest of the family will follow her influence. At TRIM, we provide critical support to women in every stage of life. 

When you love on children, you win the hearts of their parents. It's with great joy to serve both the children and families in the villages.
