We are called to engage the world.
There are approximately 14 million aids orphans worldwide. 25,000 children die everyday from lack of nutrition. 27 million people are slaves and 2 million children are held in forced prostitution. God's heart is for people and for justice. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus made it clear that we are the ones empowered to bring his light to a world of darkness. We are the ones responsible to help those in need. There isn't another plan.
Ephesians 4:1 says that all of us are called by God... called to make a difference in the lives of people. One of the ways this happens is through what's known as the 7 spheres (mountains) of influence that shape culture: Arts/Entertainment - Business - Church - Education - Family - Media - Government. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a film maker, a CEO or a missionary to a foreign land, each of us has the opportunity to bring the transforming love of God to the world around us. One of our passions is to release people to take their mountain.
One way New Hope is engaging the world is by partnering with organizations like Ten Thousand Homes in South Africa, CWAM in Wyoming, and The Bridge Connection right here in Wylie, Texas. Through these communities, and more, we are able to join with others here and abroad who are fighting injustice, feeding the hungry, serving orphans and widows, connecting the spiritually-disconnected, and loving people right where they are.
