Professionals

God's moving in an incredible way in Hope Centre and we believe that our Professionals will play an exciting role in what He wants to do in our communities. We are passionate about equipping and growing you in your faith, increasing your vision and helping you to become more effective witnesses in the marketplace. Jesus' strategy always involved believers going into the world, to penetrate the marketplace. We must embrace our ministry and mission of communicating God's love to people we come into contact with each day. 

 

It was this intentional mission strategy that Jesus had in mind when he said;

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? It’s no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled on by men. You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
— Matthew 5: 13-16
