How to Use The HOPE

  1. The HOPE as a Personal Ministry Tool
    1. A great personal devotional study to give you a deeper understanding of major Bible themes.
    2. A wonderful tool to share with a family member, co-worker or friend that they can watch at their convenience.
      • Keep some handy in your home or the trunk of your car to give away when you encounter people day to day who are interested in knowing more about Christ and the Bible.
      • DVDs of The HOPE make great gifts for Christmas, Easter, and birthdays.
      • Churches will often times put together Welcome Bags for Visitors and New Members that include a DVD of The HOPE.
    3. An easy resource to share online and through email.
      • If you become familiar with The HOPE website you can not only share the main web address, but also links to particular Lessons that cover topics that you have discussed with people or know they have interest in.
      • Email, tweet or text this link, www.thehopeproject.com, to someone so that The HOPE can be viewed at their convenience.
      • When the conversation warrants it, write the website on the business card you give them.
      • Add The HOPE website link to your Facebook page or blog so others will know where to go for free online viewing.
    4. Many parents have told us that their elementary age children will watch it over and over.
       
  2. The HOPE as a Singular Event Evangelism Tool
    1. Many churches make sure that they have one or more copies of The HOPE to take with them on mission trips, both to show and to leave behind so that local ministers can continue to share it and use it for discipleship.
    2. You might also consider a weekend retreat as a singular event where you can show The HOPE and generate discussion afterwards using some of the key questions from the Study Guide or create your own questions.
    3. The HOPE is frequently used as a special event outreach tool in churches and neighborhoods. One church in particular also used the big event to cast vision for how The HOPE could be used on the mission field and it helped them raise money to fund a new translation of The HOPE! See HOPE for Haiti.
