24 Festivals of Hope to Reach Hispanic Communities Across the U.S.

Michael Messner - Director of Domestic Outreach

We are excited to be part of reaching the Spanish-speaking communities in 24 U.S. cities from July 31 to November 30 with Festivals of Hope. A primary objective of these events is to raise awareness of community needs and empower the local church to bring relief to those in need. 

These events are organized through the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), America’s largest Hispanic Christian organization. We are honored to partner with them to bring the love of Christ to these communities.

The NHCLC leads millions of Hispanic Christ followers through 40,118 evangelical congregations providing leadership, networking, fellowship, strategic partnerships and public policy advocacy platforms in seven focus areas: Life, Family, Great Commission, Stewardship, Education, Youth and Justice.

One of the main goals for these outreaches is to instill a passion amongst the younger generation inside the Hispanic congregation to be the hands and feet of Jesus in their community.

At the first two events in Chicago, Illinois, and Staten Island, New York, participants received backpacks for children and other needed provisions. The festival environment and the show of support from the churches gave many a boost of hope and encouragement. Make sure to follow along on Facebook to see updates about the next 22 events. Thanks so much for you support and helping us reach out to the Hispanic community.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
