Hope Ministry Center

Stacks Image 31

From the time we left family and friends in the USA to embark on the adventure of a lifetime in missions, God has been planting dreams in our hearts. For the past 8 years, God has been cultivating a dream called Hope Ministry Center in our hearts.

Hope Ministry Center will be a base for several different, complimentary ministries to happen simultaneously. There could be a baby shelter, a women’s shelter, a cluster of foster homes, children’s ministry resource library, accommodations for interns and visiting teams, missionaries’ homes, and more. It could also include gardens, share-crop farming, and small businesses to promote ongoing income for ongoing ministry.


God has faithfully opened and closed doors along the way, and we have settled on a location that will bountifully meet our current needs with plenty of room (about 20.5 acres) for future ministry and all that God has in store for us and Engage Africa here in Rustenburg. It is located in an area, at the edge of Rustenburg, that currently growing because it is directly in the path of Rustenburg’s expansion and development.

The Purchase:

In December 2018, because of generous donors used by God, we were able to make the final payment for the property after just 16 short months. It was an amazing time of watching God come through time after time.

The 20 acres is more that we "need" for the vision that God has given us, so we are excited to see the rest of His ideas as He reveals them… which we are confident will come as we are faithful with the parts He has already shown us.
PHASE #1 (The not so fun phase)

Phase one is a foundational phase that must happen before any building can begin. It is not fun but very necessary to the development. This phase includes:

  • Rezoning of the property from agriculture to "special" that would allow multiple buildings and orphan care
  • Security fencing around the front half of the property
  • Road development (dirt and roads, but still must be cleared, leveled, and grated)
  • electrical, water, and septic infrastructure

We have targeted 2020 to work on implementing this phase as funding is made available.
