HOPE MISSION ENDOWMENT FUND
A gift to the Hope Mission Endowment Fund is an act of estate stewardship, reflecting the life of a faithful steward. Such a gift, whether given during one's lifetime, or through one's estate, is especially satisfying to the giver, in that it will continue to serve the purposes and people of Lord Jesus Christ, as long as His Church shall stand.
