hope (hōp/): a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
When I came up with my mission, the word "Hope" kind of just hit me. I was at a revival that I was asked to minister at. During the revival, the speaker was focusing on the word "Hope." Literally, in that moment, God gave me the following explanation.
H- Health: Romans 12: 1, 2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.
O- Optimism: Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
P-Power: John 14:12
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do;
E- Experience: Matthew 28: 19, 20
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
This sums up my entire ministry. This is my overall message. Beginning with one going to the next, they're all equally important. This is why I travel to churches and schools doing workshops entitled "Week of H.O.P.E." and "Weekend of H.O.P.E."
"Weekend of H.O.P.E"
This event is particular for churches which begin with worship and prayer. Following that service will be workshops for the music ministry team about true surrender and through prayer and Bible study, receiving the true anointing that allows lives to be changed through their music ministry. There are also workshop for the youth that focuses on finding ones purpose. I truly believe that understanding one's calling gives "hope" all by itself. We will discuss how to use that gift for God and the importance of obedience to the Holy Spirit. Whether the church service is on Saturday or Sunday, worship will be lead by myself and the worship team of the church followed by a sermon on "H.O.P.E." and rededicating our lives vowing to live our lives by that acronym. The entire weekend will conclude by a power, reviving concert that will make others rejoice in their new victorious life of service to the kingdom.
"Week of H.O.P.E."
This event is for schools of all ages. This is service is available in non religious settings as well. For 3-5 days, the students will dig deep to accept their circumstances, learn how to properly express their thoughts and feelings, and ultimately vow to the message of H.O.P.E. helping youth to realize that the choices they make determine the trajectory of their future. There will be workshops for songwriting, voice, instrumental, dance/motion, poetry, and art. These workshops will focus on building confidence in the students and help them to determine what they have to offer the world.
