About Us

We're here to mentor, train, and equip Christian families to encounter Christ and change future generations by building a house of prayer.

  • If you feel as though you are working too hard, and praying too little, you're in the right place.

  • If you want to get back to the basics of where a vibrant Christian life filled with the presence of Christ starts, you're in the right place.

  • If you desire tools to further your intimacy with the living God, you're in the right place.

All of this starts with a simple, but honest plea... "Lord, teach us to pray!" (Luke 11:1)

The revivalist Rev. Armin Gesswein used to say "Prayer is so major, we dare not minor in it any longer." What are you majoring in? No matter where you’re at in your Christian journey, there’s HOPE for you.

Jesus said, “My house shall be a house of prayer...” (Luke 19:46). All over the world God’s people are waking up to the life-giving, hope-filled, Christ-encountering house of prayer. 

Our Mission

A house of prayer exists to welcome the presence of Christ into our daily lives—at home, at work, at school…anywhere! HOPE is a ministry dedicated to helping lead families to a life-giving, hope-filled relationship of intimacy with Christ through prayer.

Our Mission

Our Vision

Our desire is to provide families with tools to build a house of prayer in their homes and ultimately anywhere God gives them influence. We seek to provide video, audio, and print resources as well as live events (both online and onsite).

Our Team

Our global team is made up of seasoned pastors, revivalists, intercessors, teachers, and church leaders with a heart to reach a lost world through a revived church.
