The following is a summary of ministries Living Hope supports, primarily financially. All may be supported by prayer and encouragement. Many of our members volunteer for a number of these ministries which meet material, emotional, and spiritual needs of kids and adults in our area. There are missionaries that Living Hope supports that are not listed here for the safety and security of those serving in areas where their status as evangelists may not be openly accepted.
