Over the years there has been an evolution of Christ-followers who have answered God's call to the mission field that have been faithfully supported both financially and in prayer by Hope Church. Each ministry partner goes through a careful and prayerful process in applying for that partnership as the leadership teams deeply desire to be faithful stewards of the mission budget. Currently we support twenty-four ministry partners around the globe and close to home.
A Hand Up Minsitry - allows the people of Hope Church to serve those in the greater Cincinnati area in need with donations of food, clothing, and personal care items. The next collection date will be February 17, 2013.
Whiz Kids - serving the at-risk students at Western Row Elementary School in Mason with one-on-one literacy-based tutoring. For more information, visit www.citygospelmission.com/whizkids.
