We believe that Scripture, Christian community, and the spiritual disciplines are key as we pursue a life that is Spirit-led and marked by servant-leadership. You will have the opportunity to learn from the diverse perspectives of your peers and members of OneHope’s broader ministry team.

Create Better Ministry

Our outcome-based ministry model helps us ensure that we are pursuing faithfulness and effectiveness in our work. No matter what area of the ministry you will serve in, we look forward to training you in OneHope’s philosophy of ministry so that you can grow in your ability to research, design, and implement outcome-based ministry models and programs.

Connect With the Global Church

We love that we get to provide opportunities for you to better understand ministry in the global Church. We believe that the opportunity to connect with theologically, nationally, and culturally diverse Christians will enrich your faith and give you a deeper understanding of what God is doing through His Church around the world.

It’s impossible not to grow here!
