Start A Hope in 5 Steps
Starting a HOPE is a commitment to see the everyone awaken to the goodness of Jesus Christ in your region. With a focus on prayer it is fairly simple to begin leading, helping run a HOPE or even attending one. Jesus said my House shall be called a House of Prayer and that is what we do when we gather together. Prayer makes the impossible happen.
The great thing about starting a HOPE is the flexibility. You set the time and date and frequency of the meetings. If you want to know what others are doing, join our Facebook group and discuss ideas, receive encouragement and arrange zoom calls with leadership. We are happy to help you along the way. You can contact leadership by emailing email@example.com with the subject - STARTING A HOPE - if you have questions while going through the process.
Whether you are new to prayer or not, we ask that you seek the Lord about starting a HOPE. If you are not sure whether you want to start a HOPE we encourage you to be a part of one near you. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find a HOPE near you.
2. Decide When To Meet
HOPE is flexible. You will need to decide how you want to organize your meetings. Do you want a weekly, biweekly, or once a month HOPE? How many HOPEs are you wanting to start? It is completely up to you.
3. Gather People to Pray
The important thing is that you pray with other people. They do not have to be a part of Worship Church. HOPE is open to anyone that is seeking and wants to experience more of Jesus. These meetings are not focused so much on teaching but on prayer. We recognize that teaching is important, but we hope to see people’s prayer lives deepen until they pray as often as they breathe. You can show others the 5-week course as well but eventually everyone should be comfortable praying outside of an outlined course.
4. Stay Connected
We have quarterly zoom meetings for all our HOPE community. Connecting with others allows inspiration and discovery on how others are accomplishing the mission. Community is also important to stay healthy emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We also want to give you the chance to form relationships with other that could lead to new opportunities.

5. Keep Up With Training
Over time we will be adding onto what we offer you at HOPE. Any resource or training we release will be free to access. All you have to do is use it and let others in your HOPE know about the resources as well. The resources are able to be used at your own pace.
Training we plan on releasing:
•Baptism of the Holy Spirit
•Signs and Wonders
