Every year across every newhope campus we do something that’s epic. We collectively invest in something called The Big Give. Over the next two months we are going to join together with hundreds of other people across newhope to give our resources to help people across the street and around the world. We’ve done this since the beginning of newhope. IN FACT, we started it on our very 1st Birthday. Most people receive gifts on their birthday, but we chose to give them. It’s what we mean when we say that newhope is Arrows Out rather than Arrows In. We have so much resource, potential, money, time, and gifts and it’s our responsibility and privilege to leverage what’s in our hands for God’s glory. (How do you know if you’re rich? Simple. You have more than you need.) We Believe that the mission of newhope is both across the street and around the world – it’s local and global. Like any living thing our tendency is to consume rather than contribute and joining with hundreds of others to give away what we have helps fight against that tendency. And in the process we start to see what is feels like to live like Jesus.
Where we’re investing:
We’ve helped launch 3 other newhope campuses (which has helped contribute to 130 people giving their lives to Christ!) and have given towards 6 other church plants and are in the process of a Makeover of our South Kitsap Campus.
We currently support 1st responder ministry called Convoy of Hope that is the first in when a natural disaster hits anywhere in the world! They also have feeding centers around the world assisting orphans and the underprivileged.
We partner with Rescue:Freedom that both rescues girls and boys out of sex trafficing and feeds and educates them which literally changes the trajectory of their lives and their future generations. Many of these kids are born in a slavery system and are endentured servants caught in the cycle of slavery until they are physically unable to perform their duties upon which time they are literally thrown out into the streets.
We support 13 Career Missionaries monthly who serve around the world bringing the gospel to places like Indonesia, Ethiopia, Dominican Republic, Cameroon, and the Arab World through a ministry called Live Dead.
