What is iHOPE Ministries?

“iHOPE took away my fear of sharing the gospel with people of other faiths. Now I’m engaging international students from many countries. If I can do this, you can too.” Paula M.

Hopeful. We believe every Christian can be an authentic witness to people of other faiths.

Accessible. You don’t need prior knowledge or experience to share the Gospel of Jesus, in love, with a friend from another faith background. Nor do you need knowledge of their holy book or culture to get started.

Duplicable. iHOPE’s ‘5 Essentials’ are easy to remember, simple to do, and fruitful. No need to learn complex methods, new languages, or complicated rules to share the Good News.

Empowering. Historically, iHOPE Alumni report actively engaging with an average of 2.4 non-Believers each, with  many coming to faith.

A Movement Begins

Renod and Karen Bejjani founded iHOPE Ministries in 2011 so that people of other faiths would come to know Jesus and make Him known The ministry comes alongside the Church with road-tested, practical content that emboldens everyday Believers to share their Biblical faith with their neighbors of other faiths. 

Sharing the Gospel with people of other faiths is not a skill typically taught in the Church, and most Christians don’t realize the need. iHOPE works alongside the Church and acts as a catalyst on a Believer’s journey, prompting many to share Jesus with people in their circles of influence, go on to serve with local mission mobilizers, further their education, or become long-term missionaries in far-flung places around the world.

God is making an extraordinary impact through iHOPE Alumni. He can make an impact through you too. Start small.

“All I knew about people of other faiths I learned in the news. I didn’t think that I could or should share my faith with them. iHOPE changed my thinking and helped me overcome fear.”

    (Acts 1:8; Matthew [28:19]; 2 Corinthians [5:20]).

    (Philippians [4:19]; 1 Corinthians [9:18]).
