Church Planting, Pioneering

Hope International Ministries (HIM) is a family of churches with many seemingly ordinary men and women who have caught the vision to do the extraordinary for God in extending the frontiers of His Kingdom. The first church plant was in Thailand in 1981.


Through the course of time, seed churches were planted in neighboring Asian cities and also in different countries across various continents. Today, we are in over 600 locations in over 50 countries across the world. As a family of churches, we share a spiritual heritage of commitment to help each other fulfill the Great Commission by actively planting churches all over the world.


This contest aims to effectively inspire people to catch the spirit of pioneering and bringing the gospel to others.


Write an article that tells a true story of your personal or others’ experience of the subject - church planting, new ministry establishment at church or at work, outreach or life transformation resulted from pioneering.
