Official Church Partners

These churches have gone through the church partnership process with HopeSprings. Churches having earned this designation have done so through an active commitment of their church leadership to lead congregational efforts of awareness and education. Church leadership and many of their congregants have taken part in the Journey training courses and are actively engaged in HopeSprings ministry efforts to equip the church so that it may effectively engage in the HIV pandemic, restoring hope and healing to those impacted by it. These are churches committed to being “safe” places for those infected and affected by HIV.

Looking for a Speaker at Your Church?

If your church is interested in having a service or portion of a service dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness, education, and a scriptural mandate to get involved, we can help! If you are looking for sermons related to HIV, we can provide those too. Contact us for more information.
Church Partnership Process. Churches wanting to join this movement, should contact us at info@hopesprings.org  to learn more. The typical pathway to church engagement is:

1. Pastoral Leadership Commitment demonstrated by discussions with HopeSprings leadership and participation in the Journey course
2. Raising of church awareness/sensitivity through an educational event facilitated by HopeSprings, but promoted by the senior pastor; or a sermon series taught by the senior pastor
3. Identification of a church liaison(s) who will serve as the primary contact between HopeSprings and your church
4. Identification of a church focus area within the ministry; such as sponsorship of testing at a local agency once/month, mentoring of teen mothers in one of our programs, facilitation of a Bible Study on site at one of our partner agencies, delivering meals to those infected by HIV, etc.
5. Hosting of Journey courses on site for interested members of your congregation
6. Serving together to transform your hearts and the hearts of those you touch through your efforts.
