HOPE 2.7 is the refugee ministry of YWAM Boise Campus. This name is born out of the promises of Haggai 2:7, "And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts."
Hope Internship is a cultural learning outreach and discipleship intensive. The objectives for participants are:
Gain a better understanding of displaced people (and the missional opportunities that come with it).
Join and serve through both the local church and YWAM focusing on outreach to the refugees in our city.
To understand discipleship principles in the use of Discovery Bible Studies, enough to begin to implement them in refugee communities.
Live in an intentional missional community yet be able to take initiative with individual relationships.
Neighborhood Awakening is strategically investing in neighborhoods with high populations of refugees. Intentional relationship building is a primary focus for YWAM in Boise. With Holy Spirit’s guidance and power we watch casual interactions become meaningful, then spiritual and dive into Discovery Bible Studies. Playing soccer, eating a meal together, teaching English or how to play guitar; there are endless treasures to awaken our refugee friends to Jesus.
