Who We Are

Hope North America is a member of Hope International Ministries, a disciple-making and church planting movement. There are member churches all over the world.

The movement began as Hope of God churches, which started in Thailand in 1981. Since then, many seemingly ordinary men and women have caught the vision to do the extraordinary for God in extending the frontiers of His Kingdom. Each one bears the same heartbeat to reach people with Christ’s transforming love by planting seed churches wherever they go. In 1989, the first church outside Thailand was planted.

Through the course of time, seed churches were planted in neighboring Asian cities and also in different countries across various continents. These international churches banded together and became known as Hope of God International (HGI).

In 2009, HGI was re-named Hope International Ministries (HIM). A contemporary approach was taken when we embarked on this change – reflecting our past strengths and embracing our future with the centrality of Christ as our foundation. Hence, we are aptly named HIM.

Our new name embraces a prevailing sense of global community that has been growing over the last two decades. We are trusting God’s Spirit to lead us into a new era of ministry!

Today, as part of the many churches in HIM, our churches are composed of people from diverse ethic groups and cultures, all worshipping and serving God while enjoying meaningful relationships with one another.

As a family of churches, we share a spiritual heritage of commitment to help each other fulfill the Great Commission by actively planting churches in the North America, and all over the world.
