Vigilant Hope is a modern missions organization with a desire to reach and serve those in need and to challenge you to do the same! We exist to educate and equip the Body of Christ to reach into the community with the hope of the gospel through urban outreach, relief ministry and educational programs.
Vigilant Hope Urban Missionaries are on the front lines battling poverty. They are actively serving Christ in the low-income communities and the homeless camps and shelters. They invest time and resources into those in need, so they know the needs of the poor first hand and can share and encourage people to help.
Vigilant Hope Outreach Programs are specially designed to connect believers with those in need through relational outreach.
“Walking Together” is a weekly meal with homeless and at-risk families and a connecting point with those in poverty.
“Invest In Hillcrest” is a movement powered by the love of Christ, designed to encourage fellowship through partnerships with families and community members living in the Hillcrest neighborhood. These partnerships are created by walking through life alongside community members in settings such as community meals, bike repairs and youth and family outreaches.
"Serve Days" We provide different opportunities and training for your church or small groups to serve in a way that is respectful to those you are serving and honoring to God.
Our Educational Programs are aimed at challenging and preparing believers to become the hands and feet of Jesus. We hope to illuminate the issues of poverty in our own country and around the world while inviting the Church to actively reach out to the needy.
“Poverty Simulation” is an experiential learning environment that takes participants through a 48 hour simulation of real poverty.
“Port City Project” is a weeklong missions experience for students. We feed the hungry, serve the homeless and restore dignity to the urban community through home repair and beautification projects.
“Engaging Homelessness Forum” Many of us encounter people who may be experiencing homelessness & wonder what is the best approach for engaging our homeless neigbors. This short forum will share some insight into the true needs of the homeless community & how to best serve in a dignifying manner. You will hear from some of our Urban Missionaries and from those who have been through homelessness.
