Bob Hoskins

Child evangelist, world missionary, author, and publisher are just a few of the responsibilities taken on by OneHope’s Founder, Bob Hoskins. In the beginning stages of OneHope, many criticized its mission to reach every child with God’s Word as a foolish dream. Bob did not listen to man’s criticism but continued pursuing the vision God had planted in his heart. As the original visionary, Bob continues as OneHope’s ambassador, meeting with world leaders and laying the initial groundwork for new relationships and programs in each country. Bob’s passion for reaching the next generation with the Word of God has compelled him to join his efforts with other like-minded ministries. He is a Founding Board Member of the Museum of the Bible, as well as Ambassador at Large for the 4/14 Movement. Bob and his wife, Helen, travel extensively advocating for Scripture engagement among children and youth.

Marwan Rifka

Marwan was born and raised in Lebanon, which is where he met the Hoskins family more than 45 years ago. At the time, the Hoskins were missionaries to Lebanon and Marwan, as a young boy, became involved in the Hoskins family ministry in Lebanon. He immigrated to the United States in 1975 when the civil war started. In 1978 he married his wife, Sue, and they now have three children, Christina, Danielle and Matthew.

After arriving in the United States, Marwan became a very successful business executive at a young age, and went on to become one of the presidents for EDS, then one of the world’s largest information technology companies. At the height of his career, Marwan left the corporate world in 2002 to become the executive vice-president of the OneHope ministry, where he is responsible for all organizational, financial and administrative matters.

Marwan strives daily to create and maintain an atmosphere of strong, biblical stewardship to enhance the effectiveness of and fulfill OneHope’s mission. Though difficult, he knows his challenges are possible and is grateful for the opportunity to affect destiny in so many children around the globe. “It is by far the most fulfilling and rewarding job that I have been involved with,” said Marwan, “Even when compared to the top executive corporate positions.”
