History of HOPE Together
HOPE Together began when three evangelists Mike Pilavachi, Roy Crowne and Andy Hawthorne brought together churches across the spectrum of denominations to put faith into words and action together in 2008. HOPE has grown from those small beginnings when 1500 areas got involved, with young people taking a lead, sharing faith at the heart of their communities. Church leaders saw the impact of churches working together in 2008 and asked HOPE to continue as a catalyst for mission nationwide.
Prayer, faith, words and action characterise all HOPE does – and we realise we are stronger together than apart, so we encourage churches of different denominations and ethnicities to work together with others in their village, town or city. We provide support, ideas and resources to equip Christians to put faith into words and action to make Jesus known.
With Roy Crowne as executive director, Rachel Jordan-Wolf as assistant director and Yemi Adedeji as associate director, HOPE Together is run by a board of trustees and a leadership team drawn from a range of denominations and ministries. Relationships are key to HOPE Together’s work across the denominational spectrum.
Here are some of the highlights of HOPE Together over the years.
