Build HOPE for tornado victims in Mayfield, Kentucky
Staying true to our mission, Hope Missionary Church is preparing to GO serve the world! Our Disaster Relief Ministry has partnered with the Hope Initiative (www.thehopeinitiative.tv) and His House Ministries (www.hishouse.tv) to rebuild a community that was destroyed in a tornado on December 10, 2021.
What is The Hope Initiative?
His House Ministries is a local congregation in Mayfield, Kentucky with a HUGE heart for their community. That church has purchased land and walked through the necessary steps to begin construction of thirteen homes for families who lost everything when the storms ripped through their town.
Hope Church’s Disaster Relief Ministry has committed to build one of those homes from the foundation to completion. While this will be a joint effort among churches in the greater Wells County community, we would love to see Hope Church take the lead!
JOIN THE TEAM!
Ways to get involved:
Our Disaster Relief Ministry has set up a seventeen-week schedule to get the job done – and they’re ready to start enlisting the help of individuals who will go and serve on the ground in Mayfield. This service opportunity is open to anyone ages 14 and up, and those between the ages of 14-17 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
You don’t need to be a skilled contractor to participate! We’ll teach you whatever you need as you serve! The general schedule shared here is just that— general. It’s based on the idea that we’ll have a crew of five individuals, but we can handle crews up to 23 people at a time. If larger crews serve one week, they’ll accomplish more— and that will move the timeline up.

Lodging & Food:
Work teams will be housed in the His House Ministries dorm that has separate sleeping rooms and bathrooms for men and women. Each week they can accommodate eleven men and twelve women. Sleeping areas are equipped with cots or team members may bring air mattresses. Team members are responsible to bring their own bedding, towels, wash cloths and personal hygiene items. A washer and dryer is available in the dorm.
Work crews will be responsible to provide their own meals and a cook to prepare those meals. So even if you’re not a huge fan of construction work— you can STILL serve by preparing meals for those who are on the work crew each week!
