What is a Life on Mission?
“GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”Matthew 28:19
Living Hope desires to reach our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ, not only proclaimed by our words, but also demonstrated through our lives. Whenever people experience genuine love through Christ-like service, they become much more receptive to the gospel. In this regard, we partner with other churches and like-minded organizations to serve our community more effectively and advance the gospel. This is a Life on Mission.
Praying for our Mission Partners and for opportunities to share the Gospel. Giving of our time, talents, and resources for God’s glory.
Going and making Disciples of Jesus Christ.
We desire to engage, equip, and empower mission teams from Living Hope to support our partners throughout the world.
What do I do now?
This year, we’re asking everyone to do three things:
- Every Lifegroup adopt a local mission partner
- Everyone adopt a national/international ministry
- Everyone share their faith
SHARE YOUR FAITH
Life change. It all begins with a conversation. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the most profound reality of life. But sharing it with someone can be as simple as three circles. Discover how you can share the gospel with anyone using the Life Conversation Guide. Click below. 3 Circles Conversational Guide

Manna Café Ministries
Kenny and Vicki York founded Manna Café Ministries in 2008 after years of working with the homeless and poor. Initially, they took donated bread and sweets into a local homeless camp. Manna Café’s methods and programs have expanded over the years, but the mission is still the same: to restore hope, love, and dignity to the broken and downcast.
At YAIPaks everything starts with the extravagant love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. YAI stands for You Are Important. Our homeless friends have been lost and forgotten by the world, but they are important. We are here to extravagantly love them the same way we’ve been loved by God.
